Words, words, words — an 
always constant flow of 
the daily written language.

COMMUNICATION 




It is a wise man who knows what he wants and 
how to get it. It is c wiser man who prays, not only 
for himself, but for others. Through prayer comes 
a real, on honest communication. This communi- 
cation Is not adulterated by trite phrases — this com- 
munication is known as TRUTH. 

So on Sunday comes a universal communication 
between the men of the Christian world, united in 
the joint communion of prayer. 

The satisfaction of reading a book, be it good 
or poor — that, too, is communication. The relaying 
of an author's thought to the mind of the reader. 
Reading opens a vista of new ideas to the world. 
And reading is communication. 

So is music, spread throughout the world on 
flat, block discs — creating o message of sadness 
and joy that is unbounded by language barriers nor 
color lines. 

Writing, too — whether it be by letter or for pub- 
lication — offers a release of ideas. A satisfaction 
within itself, writing is perhaps the most common 
source of self-expression. 

The world of mass communication is a world of 
living experience — and it makes the world a far 
better and far happier place in which to grow and 
live and learn. 






Students Enjoy the Convenience

of Modern Communications 




A boy calls a girl for a date that evening. 



The magic of communications — be it the 
day-to-day type of conversation spilled over tele- 
phone wires throughout the nation or the once in 
a lifetime television broadcast, foretelling perhaps 
the destiny of the entire nation. 

On campus, the telephones are kept humming 
from day to night with a host of incoming and out- 
going calls. And in the dormitories, the Hub and 
the journalism lounge television sets spell out en- 
tertainment and news of the moment. 

And who can forget the jukebox — that paragon 
of things musical — from rock 'n roll to sweet 'n 
smooth — that's the message communicated by the 
record machine. So even with entertainment comes 
communication. 




An operator intercepts and connects the line. 




Communication is completed — the girl answers.

Speech therapy often helps in the all-important function which is vital to everyone, and that is to speak. 




World Communication 



Communication is not only for those who 
are endowed with the physical speech or- 
gans. Even those less fortunate are gifted 
with methods of speaking. 

Some such ways are taught in the Uni- 
versity classrooms. Sign language provides 
speech for the deaf; braille helps the blind 
to discover the mysteries of literature. So 
to all comes the magic of communication — ■ 
unhindered by physical defects. 

The physically sound sit in a lecture 
class and consume the fruits of a profes- 
sorial lecture — so it goes all through the 
college years — the give-and-take of class- 
room procedure, outfitting the student for 
the rougher give-and-take of the working 
world. 

Possibly the most vigorous form of com- 
munication occurs on the athletic field. 
Before the game, it is the coach who maps 
the strategy and informs the players of the 
up-and-coming game situation, the play to 
be stressed, the play to be watched for. 

And, on the field of play, it is the players 
who turn to communication — brute com- 
munication in the form of tackles, blocks, 
and side-arms. All this is but communica- 
tion in a thousand different guises. For the 
art of communication wears a thousand 
masques, each more intricate than the first 
and each beneficial in its way. 




The often-heard sound on campus by students — the voice of a prof. 




A coach communicates with his keen 
mind while watching from the side.

The student photographer finds his outlet in film, flash bulbs, a camera on a tripod and a willing subject to pose.

An art design class releases communication made possible through its outlet of creative drawing. 



March Through the Magic of Art 



Self-expression, too, is a means of commun- 
ication. The artist puts his deepest feelings 
into a painting which is then re'ayed through 
the eyes of the onlooker. 

So it is with photography — an image trans- 
formed through the miracle of chemistry into 
o lasting and material object captured in the 
rapture of a single moment. Again, it is the 
artist, the photographer, communicating with 
his audience. 

The same holds true for sculpture, this re- 
cording for posterity of a pose. And music, too, 
is a definite form of communication. Only 
with music, the communication is achieved 
through another sense — that of hearing. Mu- 
sic is an idea of a composer transmitted to the 
listener. Communication thus is carried on 
even through the arts. 




Ideas take shape in many ways and forms. 




Music — an uncharted vista 
of worldwide communication. 




The student mail boxes provide on excellent means for exchanging notes, ideas, and dates. 



An Eyeful Through the Written Word 



Expression is achieved through the written word, 
one of the best known and most acclaimed medias 
of modern communication. 

Perhaps the most widely known media of written 
communication is the newspaper. Through the daily 
press comes all sorts of written matter designed to 
inform, interpret and entertain. 

So it is on campus. The daily newspaper and the 
very yearbook you hold — these are media of written 
communication. 

So are student mailboxes — jammed, often to 
overflowing with notices of meetings, personal cor- 
respondence and University information bulletins. 
Another method of intra-campus communication 
are the numerous bulletin boards, scattered 
throughout the halls and manned by virtually every 
department imagineable. Walk through Kent hall 
and there can be found news of educational oppor- 
tunities in sociology, psychology and education 
itself. All this is possible through the use of the 
written word. 

Each University department also offers its share 
of communicative literature in the form of pam- 
phlets, leaflets and mimeographed letters. 

Incoming freshmen are greeted each fall with 
the written word in a variety of guises — in the K- 
book, in the catalogue, and in the often-confusing 
schedule of classes. This is communication through 
writing. 




The written message is also carried to the student by 
posters and notices placed on the bulletin boards.

Science faces the challenge of communications with its methods of test tubes, microscopes and bunsen burners 



Communication Through Experimentation 



The word communication is basic . . . people use it 
for everything from the telephone and the radio to the 
boss's last memo. Communication, is of course, as old 
as man's first "Ugh!" 

All day, every day, communication is carried on — 
by word, by glance, and by gesture. There are a good 
dozen sciences examining communication from every 
angle under their respective microscopes . . . group dy- 
namics, study of the human mind and mechanical-elec- 
trical communication systems.

Match the Universal Pace 




Communication comes in many forms. 
Classes are one of the main packages in 
which thoughts are passed from person to 
person. 

In biology, there is a communication of 
physical facts, ideas and theses. Here is im- 
parted i<nowledge of the human anatomy. 

Here economics is another field of com- 
munication — through sewing, cooking and 
book learning, students communicate and 
become, themselves, a part of the communi-- 
cation. 

Psychology, learning the basis of the hu- 
man operation — that, too, leans toward the 
acquiring and imparting of knowledge. 

And so does mathematics — a communica- 
tion through the use of numbers, letters and 
formulae. A new kind, a different kind, but 
communication, in its most objective form. 

Such is the way of communication — from 
the study of the human organism, to the sub- 
jective study of psychology — and on to ob- 
jective mathematics.

Even the smallest children have unique methods of communicating when they wish to express their thoughts. 



Education - - Watchword of Tomorrow 




A definition of communication might be; any 
behavior that leads to an exchange of meaning. 
Taught from the early grades up, a child learns how 
to communicate with his fellow beings — through sim- 
ple processes that are taken for granted, but that are 
so necessary and important. 

In some education centers, communication classes 
have sprouted up — to teach the meaning of this ex- 
change to children — just the ordinary methods of 
reading, writing, and speech. 



Guidance for young minds through student teaching. 



Practical Application 



Classes are, in themselves, forms of communica- 
tion as, indeed, education is basically little more than 
a mass means of communication between professor 
and student. 

This means of communication is through lecture, 
through reports, through graphs, through motion 
pictures and through written and oral tests. All these 
are but a few forms that classroom communication 
may take. 

In a business class, communication may take the 
form of the typewritten word, the shorthand symbol, 
or business machine verbalizing. And in journalism, 
the written word takes the fore — woven into stories 
of intrigue and adventure and routine tales of police 
action, council meetings, and sports. And so is there 
communication among the teachers of tomorrow as 
they discuss the proper and improper methods of 
coordinating their classroom techniques. 

All phases of study activity can be deemed a form 
of communication, for verbal and written methods ore 
themselves the basis of study. So does communica- 
tion enter into the heart of the University — the 
classroom. 




Dictation, typing — all necessary in the business world. 



A business journalism class learns to express ideas for those engaged in industry through layout, copy and art. 





Building Communications 



Communications — the 
hands often express 
the future. 



ndustnal arts plays a role in communications — 
a role that fits into the deliberate communication, 
that of producing the material and equipment that 
covers the field. 

Good communication is communication that a 
person understands, accepts and acts upon. Building 
communication pays as high a dividend as that of re- 
ceiving it. Our business world is more highly mech- 
anized today and uses the industrial arts field for this 
emphasis. 



18 




Creative ability finds expression in the machines of the modern age by manual work 



Learning By Doing 



The word communication may be basic, but its 
meaning is for from crystal clear. People use it for 
everything and go off at several different tangents 
applying the label "communication" to each. 

Through classes such as home economics and ma- 
chine shop work, communications is parted through 
the physical equipment rather than the oral and writ- 
ten message. 



A tasty morsel or a meal — this is the way of homelike communication.

Blue and gold megaphones, a new tradition, replaced the freshman dinks during 1955. 



2,100 Freshmen Start College Life 



Eyes level — click — here's your ID cord.

"From the beauty land Ohio" .... found itself be- 
ing sung from the throats of more than 2,100 fresh- 
men, as the class of '59 began to get entrenched in the 
halls of KSU. 

For the first time in many years the traditional 
dink was conspicuously absent from the freshman at- 
tire for the week. Because of University action, the 
freshman headdress was not in sight. 

Instead, megaphones in the gold and blue of KSU 
were carried by freshmen. The class of 1960 will 
again be possessors of dinks, as a result of a student 
election. 

Long lines for registration, long lines for fee pay- 
ments and long lines for housing presented the fresh- 
men with their first taste of college life. 

Informal dances, a welcoming address by Presi- 
dent Bowman, the Freshmen Prevue and campus tours 
all combined to give the freshmen a small taste of 
what the next four years on the Kent State campus 
would be like. 








Kent State's largest freshman class listens as they hear the annual welcoming speech of President Bowman. 




Frosh Line Up For Campus Life 



Freshman Week was more than just the arrange- 
ment of class schedules and examinations — and lines. 
It was the beginning of o life at o home away from 
home; a place where for four years activities, organ- 
izations and studies were to play an important part. 



Freshman vocal talent was a highlight of the week.

Homecoming Conquers Campus Spirit and Marshall! 




Among the many campus events, Kent State's 
annual 34th homecoming celebration was one of the 
biggest. 

Homecoming fairly burst with activities, starting 
with the registration of some 7000 returning alumni 
beginning at 9;30 a.m. in the Union ballroom. 

Next came the judging of house decorations 
erected by independent groups, fraternities and sor- 
orities. Trophies were awarded to the different groups 
on the basis of originality, craftsmanship, theme and 
over-all effect. The winning organizations were an- 
nounced that night at the Homecoming dance. 

And speaking of the dance . . . Miss Betty Lewis, 
picked out of a field of 1 00 entrants, reigned as queen. 
Claude Thornhill's orchestra provided the entertain- 
ment in the MPE building, playing for a record crowd. 

The real highlight of the day was the Mid-Amer- 
ican Conference football game between Kent and 
the Big Green of Marshall College in the afternoon. 
The Golden Flashes drove to victory, sparking the 
entire day.

A time to renew acquaintances — such is Home- 
coming at Kent State. Slews of graduates, now alumni, 
return to the campus for the annual festivities, which 
include decoration competition, a football game, and 
dance. 

This year saw a fervor of preparation for the big 
day and the big game. The Golden Flashes easily 
rolled over their opposition on the gridiron. Music for 
dancing was supplied by Claude Thornhill.

Gridiron Contest Highlights Dad's Day Festivities 



Henry "Hot Lips" Levine leads the KSU twin bands in 
his new fight song, dedicated to the Golden Flashes. 




Topped by a gridiron clash between this year's top- 
flight Golden Flashes and the mighty Redskins of 
Miami University, Dad's Day heralded perhaps the 
finest display of school spirit witnessed on campus in 
many years. 

Colorful balloons bearing the imprinted legend, 
"Beat Miami" were seen on every hand in addition to 
megaphones. Fraternity representatives aided the 
cheerleaders in their all-out effort to stir up some 
school sentiment. 

Halftime featured a salute by the Twin Marching 
Bands to fathers in attendance in addition to the 
introduction of a representative "Dad". 

Concocted by the Golden K's, who this year re- 
placed the now-defunct Booster Club, Dad's Day was 
an immediate and overwhelming success. The crowd 
that surged into the Kent stands well overflowed the 
stadium seating capacity, and perfect football weather 
added to a perfect day. 




A Christmas tree lends atmosphere as the Kent State glee club renders seasonal music.

Holiday time is a happy time on campus despite 
the advent, along with festivities, of finals. 

Throughout the University, sights of the season 
were prominently displayed. Huge Christmas trees, 
decorated by Student Council members, embellished 
the sanctity of both the Atrium and the Union. 

Each of the dormitories went all-out to celebrate 
the season with festive decorations. Perhaps the most 
impressive was Terrace Hall, with a giant Christmas 
tree in the main lobby and smaller blue ones in each 
of the twin lobbies. 

But perhaps the most memorable holiday event 
of the season was the annual singing of Handel's 
"Messiah" by the combined choirs and the University 
orchestra aided by four guest soloists. 

And it was this theme that caused Student Council 
to act on a motion which provided for caroling in the 
Atrium daily by various representative groups of the 
University.

One of the somber moments at the All-Greek dance occurred when the Alpha Phis serenaded the audience. 

Pledges Have Debut at Annual All-Greek Dance 



Several Greeks take time out from dancing for some 
refreshments at the All-Greek at Meyers Lake. 



Meyers Lake in Canton was once again the site for 
the annual All-Greek formal. 

A tradition built up in the 1930's continued as the 
Alpha Phi sorority entertained the Greeks. Carol 
Evans, president of the Alpha Phis introduced the 
new pledges and the actives serenaded the new Greeks. 
The Sigma Nu fraternity, the sorority's brothers, also 
sang to the new members. 

The huge ballroom sported the colorful banners of 
the different fraternities and sororities. This and the 
setting of soft lights and music combined for a won- 
derful night of entertainment for the Greeks. 

A let-down on the usual feelings of competition 
is one of the nice features of the dance. The tradition- 
al intermission introduction of pledges is marked with 
the giving of single red roses to each girl. Except for 
this singling out by the host sorority, the affair is 
unmarked by Greek distinctions. 

Later on as the clock nears midnight, couples hav- 
ing danced and enjoyed themselves to the fullest be- 
gin thinking about heading towards home. Thus marks 
the end of an evening of festivities until next year.

Traditionally one of the top events on the

year's All-Greek formal lived up to the usual 
tradition. 

Sponsored yearly by Alpha Phi sorority, the 
dance highlights music by a well-known mu- 
sical aggregation. Intermission features a 
serenade by members of Alpha Phi in honor 
of their new pledges who are presented to at- 
tending Greeks and their dates. 

Held, as per usual, at Myer's Lake Ball- 
room in Canton, the All-Greek attracted mem- 
bers of each of the fourteen fraternities and 
eight sororities on campus. Despite threaten- 
ing weather, the attendance reached an all- 
time high.

Buddy Morrow's bond gets o workout as they present o rendition of their famous recording "Night Train' 

Morrow Makes Mellow Music 



Miss Kent State, Sally Andrus, is honored at Top Hop. 




Formerly presented as a concert, Top Hop this 
year returned to the ranks of campus dances. Open 
to all University students, the donee was held the 
night before Washington's birthday, with two o'clock 
permits given all women students. 

Dancing was to the swinging music of Mr. 'Night 
Train,' Buddy Morrow, and he obliged with an encore 
of his best-selling disc. 

Attendance was estimated to have hit the 400 
mark — all-time high for a pre-vacation dance. Attire 
was dressy, ranging from knit suits to sheath dresses. 

Highlight of the evening was the intermission 
crowning of Miss Kent State by the chairman of the 
University Social Committee. Also presented were her 
two attendants, selected on a point basis to vie for 
the final title. The winner was selected by an all- 
University election. Gifts were presented the queen 
by her sorority. Student Council, Social committee and 
various additional organizations. 

The 1956 edition of the Top Hop, which last year 
featured the Commanders, was a fitting beginning 
for the Washington's Birthday holiday and a welcome 
mid-week break for undergraduates and their dates. 
Two years ago, Sauter-Finnegan supplied the music 
for the Top Hop concert. 



The band of Buddy Morrow stars at Top Hop. 



The Top Hop, featuring Buddy Morrow end his 
band with his singers Carol Collier and Larry Valen- 
tion provided the entertainment for the 1956 affair. 
Always held the night before Washington's birthday, 
a school holiday, this was the first Top Hop dance 
held in three years. In the two preceding years. Top 
Hop took the form of a concert featuring the Com- 
manders one year and the Sauter-Finnegan orchestra 
in 1954. 

A highlight of the occasion is the crowning during 
intermission of Miss Kent State — this year's choice — 
Miss Sally Andrus. 

An overflowing crowd turned out for the dance — 
swaying to the rhythmic beat of Morrow's band and 
requesting the popular song that brought Morrow's 
name into the pop field — "Night Train." The dance 
was informal with 2 a.m. pers for the coeds.

Photography Short Course Flashes on Campus 



Flashbulbs popped — shutters clicked and Speed 
Graphics were all over the place. The annual Short 
Course at Kent State was once more in session. 

Keynote address was given by George Yates, chief 
photographer for the Des Moines Register and Trib- 
une. Following his speech, various panel members 
discussed the recent trends in photojournalism, under- 
water photography with a demonstration by Peter 
Stackpole of Life magazine, and cameras in the 
courtroom. Studio owner Paul T. Esselburn of Akron 
presented techniques on the lighting and posing of 
society pictures.

Some innovations in photography. Relaxing at Short Course. 



In 1938 an idea became a reality and the Annual 
Short Course in Press Photography came into being. 

Since its inception the course has played host to 
many nationally known photographers who have 
brought new innovations to Kent State during spring 
vacation. 

The invasion of the several hundred photographers 
each year does not cause an upheaval among the 
students, since the lensmen take over Engleman Hall 
while the campus is on its yearly rest between quarters. 

The course has been nationally recognized as the 
best of its kind and continues to expand each year. 
The four day seminar was founded to give photo- 
graphers and editors a chance to learn new methods 
of photography. It also gave the men a chance to 
exhibit some of their works in the contest which is 
held each year. Several different categories enable 
the photogs to enter their works for judging and 
prizes. 

The Short Course in 1955 saw one of the largest 
groups of photographers invade the Kent campus for 
their finest hour.

Fantasy, reality, Irish folklore and romance are 
the ingredients which made the annual "No Time 
For Classes" production a highlight of the spring 
quarter. 

For the first time in Kent State's history. Stu- 
dent Council sponsored a Broadway musical instead 
of the traditional original tune show. The student 
directed and acted company of over fifty people 
staged the musical fantasy, "Finian's Rainbow", 
which was a great success on Broadway in recent 
years. 

Directing NTFC for his second year, John Mor- 
row assembled an exceptionally talented cast.

Young sharecroppers lived in Rainbow Valley, which provided the setting for NTFC. 



A singing ensemble of twenty-four voices and a 
corps de ballet of twelve dancers made up the largest 
cast ever to be seen on the KSU stage. 

Starting its eleventh year as an annual production. 
NTFC proved to be as sparkling a success on campus 
as it was on the Broadway stage. 

Main character ports were: Cal Johns as Pinion, 
Audrey McEntire as his daughter, Sharon, and Dove 
Jecmen played the over-grown leprechaun. Others 
were Guy Totoro as Woody Mohoney, Sharon's lover; 
his sister Susan was Mary Spacht. Frank Merolla 
played Senator Billboard Rowkins and Bob Dill was 
his assistant Buzz.

Gamma Phi Beta's Hawaiian theme won 
first place honors among the sororities. 
First place for fraternities went to AEII 
for their gold fish and ping pong balls. 





We're all having a wonderful time; wish you were here. 



Again the spirit of competition goes rampant 
among the independent groups, fraternities and sor- 
orities as KSU's Penny Carnival rolls around this year. 

Alpha Epsilon Pi won the first place trophy last 
year with their booth of throwing golf balls in gold 
fish bowls. The groups that make the most pennies 
from their booths win the first place trophy. Contri- 
butions go to the Scholarship fund of the Blue Key and 
the Cardinal Key. 

The 28th of April in Wills gym marked the date 
of the festivities. Dignity and somberness gave way 
as the hilarity of the midway unfolded in the gym. 

Ever shove a balloon? Ring a leg? Or maybe 
dice games are more your line. Whatever your idea 
of fun and kicks may be, you'll find plenty to amuse 
and laugh with at the Penny Carnival. And it's all for 
a worthy cause too! 



t's time out for the 
pause that refreshes. 



Pitching pennies seems to be the most appropriate of the booths at Penny Carnival

There's a long, long trail a'winding of Campus Day floats as a bright spring day helps to highlight the day. 



Campus Day - - Memories To Last For A Lifetime 



The Campus Day Queen is escorted to her throne. 




A holiday throng of more than 10,000 alumni 
and undergraduates swarmed on campus for the 
16th annual celebration of Campus Day. 

Highlight of the morning program was the 
coronation of Queen Patti Maher by Student Coun- 
cil President Joe Franko and the presentation of her 
ten member court. Also participating in the in- 
augural procession were white-clad members of 
Cardinal Key, national women's service honorary. 

A series of folk dances were performed in honor 
of the court by the University HPE Club, replacing 
the Maypole dance of former years. 

With the starting time moved up to 3:30 p.m. 
to facilitate earlier dining prior to the dance, sing- 
ing topped the afternoon activities as organizations 
competed for honors in Songfest. Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon topped the fraternity division as Alpha Phi 
was judged winner among sororities. Independent 
victors were Kappa Phi and Sigma Theto Epsilon.

ATO's float, symbol of world peace. 



Top event on the spring social calendar, 
Campus Day annually draws thousands to the 
campus, all to view the co orful events. 

Beginning with Cardinal Key's procession 
in the morning, the presentation of the queen 
and her court, and the traditional Maypole 
dance. Campus Day is a spectacle of color and 
entertainment. 

Following the morning procession is the 
early afternoon parade of floats. Entrants from 
both Greek and Independent ranks stop Main 
Street traffic as they pass the reviewing stand in 
front of Rockwell Library. 

Then comes songfest — also attracting entries 
from Greek and independent factions. The 
music, new and familiar, provides a serene at- 
mosphere to the spring afternoon. 

Climaxing the day's activities is the tra- 
ditional dance, featuring music by one of the 
nation's top bands. Highlight of the dance is 
the presentation of awards to the winners in 
both float and songfest competition. From start 
to finish. Campus Day provides memories that 
are designed to last a lifetime. 



A touch of humor is presented by 
Alpha Phi's 1955 Campus Day float.

Alpha Chi Omega, Sigma Nu, Independent Stu-

in the 1955 edition of Rowboat Regatta. 

Festivities got underway at noon with a motor 
cavalcade to Hudson Springs Park. Between-race 
entertainment was provided by singer Guy Taro, the 
Alpha Phi Quartet and the Skylarks. 

Reigning over the day's activities was red-headed 
Myrna Lemley, ably assisted by the four runner-ups in 
the queen contest — Cecile Crittenden, Lynn English, 
Betty Hasson and Carol Hampton. 

Alpha Tau Omega strained its way to victory in 
the Phi Delta Theta-sponsored Tug-0-War contest, 
defeating Delta Tau Delta. 

The annual rowing contest was sponsored for the 
first time by Sigma Delta Chi, national professional 
journalism fraternity. Regatta was originally a project 
of the Kent Stater staff and later was organized on 
an independent basis with student chairmen. Dick 
Baun headed the 1955 event.

hot May sun. However, a mammoth thunderstorm held off 
just long enough to allow completion of scheduled races.

show. Music from Tin Pan Alley plus a scene de- 
picting New York's skyscrapers was the setting for 
the show, "Lullabies of Broadway." The swimmers 
glided through a variety of twelve numbers which 
included a Charleston solo, a clown act, two duets, 
several chorus routines, an all-mole sextet, and a 
block-light tropical jazz performance. 

Breathtaking high dives brought the hour and a 
half show to a successful close. Responsible for 
keeping all heads above water was Professor Krause 
and her student assistants Betty Vickers, Janet 
Gibson, and Shirley Minish.

Greeks Race In Relays 



A major deluge washed out the initially sched- 
uled installment of the Gamma Phi Beta-sponsored 
May Day relays. 

The thunderstorm, coming just after the final 
Rowboat Regatta race, cancelled the original plans 
for on afternoon of dual activity, but the Gamma 
Phi's refused to give up and rescheduled the annual 
event for the following Tuesday. 

Held on the lawn to the side of Rockwell library, 
the relays offered Greeks an opportunity to frolic in 
a series of skill contests. 

Included on the agenda were such stunts as a 
pie-eating contest, balloon breaking contest, egg- 
throwing competition, peanut push and patch sew- 
ing. The winners in both the sorority and fraternity 
division received shiny gold trophies for their 
proficiency.

Due recognition was bestowed upon 188 students 
accomplishing mastery in their academic fields at the 
23rd annual scholarship convocation, and four per- 
sons were cited for individual work leading to gradua- 
tion with honors. 

Presiding at the program was Dean Raymond M. 
Clark, while scholarship citations for dormitories were 
presented by Dean Glen T. Nygreen. 

Highlighting the event was announcement of the 
Women's Panhellenic Scholarship cup winner. The

Nestled amid the northeastern Ohio hills 
is Kent State University — where knowledge- 
thirsty men and women come to quench their 
draught. Here is where the leaders of tomor- 
row are weaned on such staples as psychology, 
biology, history and English. This is the well- 
oiled machinery of learning and teaching 
welded into one. Here is EDUCATION. 

Easy enough to attain these days, educa- 
tion can provide the key to the future. At 
Kent State, eager students are instructed with 
on eye to that future, with the goal of security 
always before them. And only through the 
education of today's men and women con 
security be assured, not only on an individual 
plane, but also on a much greater scope. 

Kent State provides the book-learning, but 
it is each student's opportunity to apply that 
learning to their chosen vocation. The Uni- 
versity also supplies practical experience in a 
variety of fields — radio, journalism, chemistry 
and literature. Horizons for the graduate are 
unlimited.

Board of Trustees 



Kent State gives a note of thanks to its Board of 
Trustees and a special note of appreciation to its as- 
sistant secretary, Mrs. Alice Makinson. 

Mrs. Makinson holds two positions, for she is also 
secretary to Kent State's president, George Bowman. 

A group of six members compose the Board of 
Trustees. Five of the board are appointed, one each 
year for a period of five years, by the Governor of 
Ohio, with the consent of Legislature. The sixth mem- 
ber is the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. 

Some of the jobs allocated to the board are the 
appropriation of school funds, expansion programs, 
and the policies of the University. 

As for projects in the near future, the student body 
can look forward to the granting of their wishes after 
careful consideration by this group.

Sec; Charles H. Lake, Vice Pres.; John R. Williams, 
Pres.; Otto J. Korb, Treas.; Robert H. Stopher, Trustee. 




Girl Friday for both the board of trustees and the 
President as secretary, is Mrs. Alice Makinson.

Chief public relations man, planner, and administrator, 
is president of Kent State University, George Bowman. 



Pres- Bowman — One Man Team 



To be the head of a university, its overseer, its 
judge, its keeper, and its organizer, is a fulltime 
job for President George Bowman, In fact, there 
is a lot of overtime put in — but the reward is 
more than gratifying — it is a satisfaction that 
everything is running smoothly, and that missing 
links are replaced, while rusty spots smoothed 
out. President Bowman is highly respected by 
both colleagues and students who feel that in this 
man they have an able administrator and 
manager. 



Personnel Deans Stress Social Rules 




Mrs. Davis may be a new name, but the 
same warm-understanding prevails. 



Her friendly smile and over-all glow are the trade- 
mark of Kent State's Dean of Women. Into her cap- 
able hands falls the responsibility of the entire student 
women body as well as the odvisorship of the Asso- 
ciation of Women Students. A warm personality and 
unbiased opinion ore qualities in her job that have 
become well-known to those who have met her. 

The duties of a dean often become involved, but 
although the headaches seem frequent, there is sat- 
isfaction in the knowledge that hundreds of girls 
hove been helped and many friendships secured. 

During the Thanksgiving vacation, Dean Swan- 
son took on another career when she became Mrs. 
Donald Davis. 




A ready smile and sympathetic listener 
can be found in KSU's Dean of Men. 



One office door that is always open to the men 
students on campus is that of Glen T. Nygreen, their 
dean. When advice is needed, or perhaps just a plain 
man-to-man talk. Dean Nygreen can be counted on 
to be there. 

To be in charge of the daily problems of hundreds 
of students requires great patience and endurance. 
But with the understanding and sympathy that can be 
found in the Dean of Men, the task is lightened by 
the thanks of grateful students. Dean Nygreen is 
highly respected by his students and is known for his 
helpful counseling. He is always in constant touch 
with the student body.

Men Behind The Scenes 



To be a well-run organization, a university 
must have a clear-cut decentralization of its ad- 
ministration. And Kent State has just that, with 
each department efficiently run by capable heads. 
A student's problems, whatever they are, are taken 
care of, swiftly, and surely. 




Financial wizard of Kent's 
treasury is the University 
comptroller, Paul E. Beck. 



The student's friend is Loren 
Hadley, who is Kent's able 
director of student advising. 



Keeping Kent well supplied 
is a never-ending task for 
Business Manager Emil Berg. 




Employers seek the help of 
Lester Munzenmayer, director 
of Bureau of Appointments. 



As vet coordinator, alumni sec- 
retary, and assistant dean of 
men. Ben McGinnis is busy. 



Extension and special activ- 
ities fall under the guidance 
of Clayton Schindler. 



News, Jobs 'N Guidance 



At Kent State, there are channels within the Uni- 
versity that help the students with their special ser- 
vices. The men in charge of these operations know 
all there is about their duties, and each works hard 
to keep his department well-stocked with necessary 
tools and connections that are needed. Through 
their efficient handling, good public relations is 
maintained between University, student, and the 
outside public with whom they must deal. Through 
their efforts, Kent State is a smoothly-run unit. 



Public affairs officer for the 
University is George Betts, 
who keeps Kent in the news. 



Newly appointed Russell Har- 
ris is the man in charge of 
Kent State U's News Bureau. 



The final okay on University 
publications must come from 
University Editor Julia Waida.

They also help to maintain a safe and respectable

The Seniors 



Liberal Art Majors Prep 
For Varied Careers 



Under the administrative eye of Dean Eric N. 
Rackham, majors in the College of Liberal Arts are 
busily training for degrees in such diversified fields 
as journalism, medical technology and industrial 
mathematics. 

In addition to major fields, special programs in 
pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-theology and 
pre-osteopathy are offered students enrolled in the 
Liberal Arts college. 

Basically, all courses within the college empha- 
size a fundamental background in arts, sciences and 
humanities. Most of the programs are not specialized, 
but offer a wide scope of study. 

Besides its individual function as a separate col- 
lege within the University, the College of Liberal Arts 
also offers courses and services designed to meet the 
needs of the other schools and colleges.

Looking forward to future careers in

to cite a few, are graduating seniors in the 
College of Liberal Arts. After four years of 
study, coffee-breaks, and social life, these seniors 
are prepared to take on the work-a-doy world. 
Some will continue their study, aiming at Master 
and Ph.D. degrees. Others contemplate marriage 
and/or jobs. Whatever their goal, they will 
mark 1956 as a red-letter year — that of 
graduation.

Commencement means something different 
to each individual graduate. To some, it provides 
the long-awaited opportunity for new achieve- 
ments and to others, the end of on era of 
collegiate experience. But whatever its 
meaning, it is a goal for which Liberal Arts seniors 
have struggled through four years of under- 
graduate work. And each of the graduates has 
earned the right through diligence to join the 
parade of alumni as they pass down the 
aisle to receive their sheepskins.

Not something to be token lightly, but 
something achieved through four or more long 
years and seemingly longer evenings of study, 
graduation will culminate a long-remembered 
interlude in the lives of Liberal Arts seniors. 
It will attest both the end of an experience 
and the beginning of another as block- 
gowned seniors march toward their diplomas at 
commencement. Kent State has done its part, now 
it is in the hands of each individual to make 
his own way.

Commencement time for business administration 
seniors means the four years of study, tests, 
discussion groups and seminars will now be put 
to test. It also means that from this group will 
come outstanding alumnae who will be a credit 
to Kent State and to the teachers who gave 
their knowledge to the neophytes who will 
carry on the high standards of the business 
world. These business graduates will be the ad- 
vertising men, the executives, the secretaries, 
the planners of tomorrow.

Job hunting, interviewing, and placement 
are next in line for the B.A. graduate. Aided by 
his department heads, he steps into a position 
that he is well qualified to handle, with the 
confidence that the task will be capably filled. 
Trained in the ways of the business world, now he 
must apply practicality to theory and 
teaching. Many Kent graduates have gone far 
in their fields after graduation with the 
excellent training received.

Competitive exams, ledgers, graphs and charts 
can be put aside with o grateful sigh. Now it's 
out into the business world to practice what has 
been preached, and to apply the theory, 
mechanics and knowledge to whatever profession 
the business major has learned. But along with 
the ledgers, slide rules and filled ink pens, 
there must be the ambition, the personality, and 
the ability to get along with other people.

Training, Recap Courses 
Top Ed- Curriculum 



Aims of the College of Education, under the lead- 
ership of Dean Robert I. White, Jr., are twofold in 
nature. First, the college trains prospective school 
teachers, supervisors and administrators, and sec- 
ondly, it offers a variety of courses for already certi- 
fied instructors in northeastern Ohio. 

Both two year cadet programs and the usual four- 
year courses are offered by the college in addition to 
degrees in special fields such as speech and hearing 
therapy, slow-learners, deaf education and trade 
and industrial education. 

Graduates of the College of Education are eligi- 
ble for the Ohio four-year provisional certificate since 
the College program is set up in accordance with the 
requirements of the State of Ohio Department of Edu- 
cation. Included in the program for all graduates is 
a minimum of one quarter of student teaching. 




A close watch on education majors is kept by the head 
of the College of Education, Dean Robert I. White.

Education has come far since the reodin', writin' 
and 'rithmetic stage. It is now a rather specialized 
field. Besides the general philosophy of the 
practices and teachings the future educator 
must learn, there are additional courses such as 
educational psychology, and the practical student 
teaching. The graduate goes on to further 
degrees if he wishes, becomes more specialized 
and has a more appreciable knowledge 
for his field.

Vistas of an educational future will open up come 

graduation day for seniors in the College of 

Education. Prepared to instruct at all levels of 

the field — from kindergarten to high school — 

these graduates remind the observer that 

Kent was originally a Normal School, solely for the 

education of teachers, way back at its origin 

in 1913. Since that time, a great number of 

grads have trouped out to teach the 

coming generation of Kent State undergrads.

From the postepots of the kindergarten to the oft 
pounded typewriters of the high school student — 
these are the goals of graduates in the University 
College of Education. Not to be denied, these 
seniors, now about to join their pedagogical 
predecessors, have completed a program which 
included a quarter of student teaching and 
many hours of lecture courses on hygiene, 
biology, art, music and their special field 
of concentration. Now they are ready to teach.

Handed their diplomas on commencement doy, 
is now the education graduate's turn to do the 
same. Homework, grades and tests are not 
over for him, as he is now the creator 
behind the scenes which were once his responsi- 
bility to perform. But there are the summer 
vocations, the Christmas vacations, and the 
spring vacations which no other profession 
con offer to its members. A well 
deserved compensation.

"All work and no play make Jack a dull 
boy" — so claims the old adage. Evidently the 
administration of Kent State University holds 
to the saying because here there is an outlet 
for virtually every field of endeavor — -from 
religion to socializing to foreign affairs. 

Just name it and Kent State can offer it! 
A variety of activities, both individualized 
for select groups and designed for all-Uni- 
versity participation. 

In the former category are departmental 
clubs, honoraries, professional groups. In the 
latter are such highlights as Campus Day, 
Homecoming, Top Hop, and Military Ball. And 
all take time and effort. 

Many are designed to aid the student in 
the vocation of his choice — such as publica- 
tions, theatre and Future Teachers of Amer- 
ica. Others merely offer a chance to grow 
through getting to know people and what 
makes them tick on a social basis. Both are 
all-important in the University function. 




102 




The gavel raps for attention as Kent's governing body 
of students opens another session on KSU problems. 



Student Government 



Kent State's student government is similar 
to that of our own American government, ex- 
cept of course conducted on a much smaller 
scale. 

Its purpose is to be elected by and to demo- 
cratically represent the student body. It also 
is to provide a sounding block for all students to 
voice their opinions for any program that will 
make Kent a better university. 

However, also like our national government, 
Kent has its problems with elections. Despite 
publicized campaigns only a sma'l part of the 
student body turn out to vote. 

Student government meetings frequently run 
late when problems come up, such as the contro- 
versial issues which were on the Council's agenda 
this year. By making a careful examination of 
their own personal feelings and looking at the 
issues objectively the Student government of 
Kent State came out, having accomplished an 
adequate job.

Student Council 



It was a year marked by major battles and minor 
skirmishes for the members of Student Council, KSU's 
student governing body. 

Facing Freshman Week with vigorous protests over 
the prospect of no hazing. Council immediately began 
to moke its power felt as the ruling stood until a win- 
ter election vote soundly showed student preference 
for a "return to dinks." 

The Social Code also came in for its shore of at- 
tention from the group as members voted to amend 
the Code as formulated by the personnel deans. 

But it was on the issue of the Macedonians that 
Council really found itself in a stew. Faced with an 
organization that claimed its aims were "to further 
the gentlemanly arts such as boar-hunting and fal- 
conry," Council refused to recognize the club, saying 
that its aims were inconsistent with those of the Uni- 
versity. 

Later, with a change in "Big Brother's" constitu- 
tion. Council reversed itself following a controversial 
retreat into a committee-of-the-whole. 

In spite of the major issues, Council also found 
time to handle the routine matters with finesse.

Blue and Gold 



Blue-Gold started off the year with a resounding 
bong — the result of Freshman Week introduction to 
the party. 

And that bang reverberated throughout the fall 
quarter, although the party failed in its efforts to gain 
a Council majority. It did, however, capture a major- 
ity of class offices. 

Blue-Gold campaign literature flooded the campus 
at election time, with all types of gimmicks designed 
to lure voters to the polls. 

Membership in Blue-Gold was increased as Alpha 
Epsilon Pi and Phi Kappa Tau joined the ranks. With 
a slogan of "B-G — Better Government," the political 
party surged forward in its efforts to get the vote out. 
All in all, the party's efforts paid off at the polls after 
a slack year in '54-'55.

Nu-K Political Party 



Despite intra-party dissention, Nu-K managed to 
maintain its Council majority in both the fall and 
winter elections. 

Keyed to the opposition party, Nu-K kept its fin- 
ger in the news columns of the Kent Stater and placed 
its men in key campus positions. The party boasted 
three of four Council officers within its membership. 

Campaigning reached all-time fever pitch during 
the hard-fought fall election, in which the Nu-Kites 
emerged victorious, although their majority was slight. 

Winter elections were considerably brightened by 
a Nu-K sponsored pamphlet that stressed Nu-K's 
nominating policies. "Don't put YES men in office," 
was the cry. The party, however, only managed a split 
for Council offices in the slack election, but it was 
enough to prove its position as a political power on 
campus.

Men's Student Association 



All men entering Kent State belong to one organ- 
ization regardless of what college they enter or what 
field they are going to pursue after graduation. 

Men's Student Association is formed with repre- 
sentative members and officers who are elected by 
the male body of the school every spring quarter. 
These men are elected on the basis of four principles 
which form the nucleus of the organization: leader- 
ship, character, scholarship and service. 

Every winter quarter MSA co-sponsors Pork Barrel, 
which features short skits by campus organizations. 
This year's show was held before the largest audiences 
in the show's twenty-five year history. Men's Student 
Association also co-sponsors, with AWS, a banquet for 
presidents of all the University organizations. 

And after a lapse of one year, the Beard Growing 
Contest was again revived, as MSA continued in their 
efforts to give the best to KSU's male students. 



108 



AWS 



Co-partner of MSA, is the Association of Women 
Students, the female governing body on campus. 

Automatically a member of this association after 
payment of fees, a coed is eligible to choose repre- 
sentatives from her dorm who will see that her requests 
and opinions are heard. 

AWS has the legislative power to act on all rules 
pertaining to University women. It also has a judicial 
side with on interdormitory council that works along 
with the house council in each dorm to enforce the 
regulations set up by the AWS executive board. 

The Association holds parties each quarter for off- 
campus women, a reception for commuters, and a 
senior women's banquet. They also act as co-sponsor 
along with MSA for Pork Barrel and the Presidents' 
Banquet held each year.

Highlight of campus holiday festivities is the musicdepcrtment's annual presentation of the 'Messiah'. 



Musically Yours 



"Music To Live By" could well be adopted as the 
theme of the hard-working Madrigal Singers, smallest 
of the University song groups. 

These songsters easily make up for their lack of 
size through the beauty of their voices, blended to- 
gether in perfect harmony. The Madrigals add their 
talents to many of the School of Music programs, in- 
cluding the annual Christmas presentation of Handel's 
"Messiah," when they join with the University A Cap- 
pella and the University orchestra. 

If music can be sung, the Madrigals can sing it, 
and sing they do for the pleasure of audiences both 
on campus and at public concerts. Hard work and 
years of training have yielded the magnificance of 
song as produced by the well-versed Madrigal Singers 
of KSU.

A Cappella Choir 
Madrigal Singers 



Every quarter is a busy quarter for the multiple 
talents of the A Cappella choir. Each new school ses- 
sion brings a series of demands for its appearance at 
concerts and tours in the area. 

Under the able direction of Robert T. Foulkes, the 
A Cappella choir has reached high stature and its 
many talents are extolled by music critics in the 
northeastern Ohio section of the nation. 



Melodic notes resound from the blended voices of KSU 's A Cappella choir as they display their reputed quality.

Rehearsal, even more than the actual performance, is a time for deep musical study. 




Eighteen years ago, a small group of music-minded 
Kent citizens got together and began to form the Kent 
Civic Orchestra. As the years went on, students of 
the University gradually entered the ranks of the 
musicians, until after the second world war, the group 
became the Kent State Civic Orchestra. 

Many of the musicians are amateurs, but a large 
number of music teachers are numbered among this 
outstanding musical aggregation. 

Because of the difficulties in getting together for 
practice, the group has been hampered in its aims. 



The deepest, most somber tones in orchestral ( 
rangements are usually played by the bass section.

Quality, Not Quantity 
Marks Orchestra 

Quite often the orchestra of a large university is 
lost in the shuffle of hundreds of organizations, 
activities and recognition. 

At Kent State, this is not so . . . because of the 
high calibre of the musicians in the University's or- 
chestra. The organization is one of the better known 
groups on campus. 

Every Christmas season, the townspeople of Kent 
and the musical organizations of Kent combine their 
talents to present the Messiah by Handel. In addition 
to this annual presentation, the group also gives a 
regular concert on May Day. 

Under the direction of Louis P. Krch, the orchestra 
has become an integral part of not only the cultural 
life of the University, but of the entire area as well. 




One of the most important axioms in the musical 
world is to always follow the beat of your leader. 




Staid or lilting, light or gruff, the violins are the most versatile instruments in the Kent Civic Orchestra.

Attention! Ready to march into action are the Twin Bands of KSU, headed by a corps of top majorettes.

KSUs Twin Bands 



With the arrival of crisp fall weather, the stadium 
crowd awaits the arrival of band music. The strains 
of a march drift through the stadium, introducing the 
KSU twin marching bands, under the direction of Roy 
D. Metcalf. 

The band swings onto the field with a brisk step 
for the pre-game ceremony. They sit together during 
the game and help the spectators cheer the team on 
with the KSU Fight Song. 

At half-time their work begins. The 90 band 
members strut onto the field and go through their ma- 
neuvers. They must keep in step and keep the lines 
straight, which is just the mechanical part of the show. 
The musical rendition of the theme must tie the rou- 
tine together. 

Some of the music used for the shows is original, 
like the Golden Flash March, written by Henry La- 
vine. This year the band also put on their show for the 
Cleveland Browns and were well received.

The Tone? 



Every week day during the football season, KSU's 
twin marching bands can be found practicing several 
hours for football ceremonies. 

Weather permitting, the bond goes through its 
paces in the Kent State stadium, oft time freezing in 
the process of marching and playing. 

Although the band appears on the field a short 
time, there ore hours of private and group practice in 
preparation for pre-game and half-time events for 
the benefit of fans. 

During all these many activities, band members 
maintain the care of their instruments and band uni- 
forms. 

Each new season also brings about the loss of 
old, experienced band members, but KSU's twin 
marching band manages to live up to its past tradition.

Ginger and King Lear 
Fill Out Year 



William Shakespeare's "King Lear," closed the 
1954-55 UT season last spring quarter. A large cast, 
directed by Earle E. Curtis, presented one of the finest 
shows ever to be seen at Kent State. An unusual re- 
volving set was designed by Howard Becknell. Charles 
Kray portrayed the aged Lear, Dolo Shonobrook played 
Cordelia, and the other two sisters were Sally Cahur 
and Nancy McKenna. Al Mancini, Larry Lowrance, 
Frank Torok, and Nancy Wynn completed the prin- 
cipal cast. 

The Freshman Players opened the winter quarter 
with the presentation of "Time Out for Ginger," 
directed by Dr. Bedford Thurman. This comedy of 
youth and family life revolved around a football-play- 
ing daughter and her understanding parents. Jean 
Ann Woldvogel headed the cost which included Mari- 
lyn NahovQ and Richard Smida in supporting roles.

The imaginary ship, U.S.S, Caine, docked for a 
four night run on the Kent State stage long enough 
for a performance of "The Caine Mutiny Court-Mar- 
tial." Directed by G. Horry Wright, with sets designed 
by Howard Becknell, the Herman Wouk play was 
presented December 1 , 2, 3, and 5 in the University 
auditorium. Featured in the cost were: Carl Oglesby, 
Robert Spanabel, John Descutner, Lorry Lowrance and 
Zone Saunders. 

L. Frank Baum's children's classic, "The Wizard 
of Oz," was staged by the UT players during the 
winter quarter under the supervision of Dr. Bedford 
Thurman of the Speech-Theatre faculty. Children in 
the audience were taken over the rainbow, to the Land 
of Oz, with Dorothy, in search of the great wizard. 
Principal roles were played by Joye Smity, Ed Pyie, 
Frank Everly, and William Fry.

"The talk's the thing," to para-phrase Hamlet,

Designed to further the art of debating, the group 
competes with representatives from other campuses 
for speech honors in various categories. Individuals 
scored high for the Kent State delegation to the re- 
gional tourney, bringing home numerous honors. 

Primarily composed of speech majors, the Student 
Forensic association scores high in campus prestige, 
as they bear the banner of the University to competi- 
tions throughout Ohio and the Midwest. 

Long a campus institution, the members strive to 
fulfill their slogan of "stimulating progress in inter- 
collegiate speech and communication". Scholarship 
also ranks high among the members with a raft of 
honor students complementing the organization. All 
told, it was a successful year for the Kent State dele- 
gation.

WKSU-FM 




And now for the news! In addition to the many enter- 
taining features of WKSU, the radio staff also offers 
the serious programming — news and commentary 




"The Voice of Kent State University" — that's 
WKSU in a nutshell. The campus radio station, oper- 
ating on an FM frequency and piped into the campus 
dormitories by special wire, keeps the student body 
informed of news in addition to providing a host of 
special features. 

Topping the fall quarter presentations was a 
special broadcast entitled, "The Night Before Home- 
coming," which included toped interviews with persons 
working on their house decorations. Music, interviews 
with campus dignitaries, and plays proved popular 
diversions too. 

Possibly the best known of the WKSU feotures is 
the "WKSU Quiz" which pits panels representing 
various campus groups against each other in com- 
petition for on annual trophy. Another popular fea- 
ture this year was the "Guy Taro Show" featuring 
Singer Taro and other musically inclined undergrad- 
uates.

Daily Kent Stater 



It's no easy job, putting out four pages a day, four 
times a week as any Stater staffer will tell you. 

News begins pouring in as early as 8 a.m. on a 
normal day and the flow never ceases until well past 
the 6 p.m. deadline. The romance of a fabled reporter 
often escapes the eager freshman as he is assigned to 
do routine checking of University offices, but to the 
seasoned Stater veteran, the daily rush to meet dead- 
lines captures his imagination and makes each day a 
new challenge. 

Perhaps no one knows better than a member of the 
Stater staff exactly how the University trend is swing- 
ing on any major issue, for the campus BMOC's are 
constantly informing the newspaper of happenings 
outside the pale walls. Working on the staff of the 
Daily Kent Stater is an education in itself.

Issues galore sprinkled the pages of the Daily Kent 
Stater and provided fuel for the editorial fires as staff 
members worked long hours to perpetuate the high 
journalistic standards of the University School of 
Journalism. 

Fall quarter saw the Macedonians rise to the crest 
on the campus news scene . . . But despite the popu- 
larity of "Big Brother" and his followers, the Social 
Code also came in for its share of column inches as did 
Student Council. 

During winter quarter, it was a switch to the 
Greeks as two fraternities drew social probation and 
created a splash in the Stater. 

However, all was not serious. Dick Bibler's famed 
"LMOC" drew daily laughs from his avid followers. 
The inside pages offered social news and a variety of 
well chosen feature material. Homecoming and Pork 
Barrel topped the Stater prior to the annual presenta- 
tions of each.

Chestnut Burr 



Visitors to the offices of the Chestnut Burr, located 
in the dark recesses of Kent Hall, might be greeted by 
a barrage of flashbulbs as staffers engage in out-and- 
out warfare or the pleasant aroma of coffee perking 
on the back burner. It all depends on the occasion. 

Sometimes there are arguments as tempers flare 
prior to deadlines. Stock resignations highlight the 
Burr routine as irate staffers walk out only to return 
after a cup of Hub coffee ready to "meet that deadline 
or bust." 

But all is not play. There is the constant pressure 
of meeting deadlines, of lining up organizations and 
individuals for pictures, queen judging, and a variety 
of intricate problems which sometime seem impossible 
to untangle. 

It's a lot of fun and a lot of headaches — this 
making a yearbook.

The members of the staff work diligently, taking 
time out to push the photographer's cars up an icy 



hill, setting fire to bad pictures with rubber cement, 
and taking pictures of each other. 

Actually, they ore a "swell bunch of characters," 
who co-operate well with each other and put in many 
hours to produce Kent State's yearbook.

Business Staff

The business staff of the yearbook has 
the responsible task of handling contracts 
with organizations, selling advertising and 
keeping the books in order. 

They travel to industries and businesses 
in Kent and neighboring cities to secure 
advertisers for the Chestnut Burr. Money 
is essential in producing a yearbook and the 
capable staff procures this necessity.

Advisors to Publications 



A yearbook and a daily newspaper — the two publi- 
cations that present the student writer to the student 
reader, require more than just undergraduate work. 

It is here that the faculty advisors appear on the 
scene. Professor James Fosdick and Professor William 
Fisher are faculty consultants for the Chestnut Burr 
and the Kent Stater respectively . . . giving their time, 
advice and assistance. 

This has been the initial year for both men in their 
positions as aides to the publications. Without the 
technical ability and the helping hand extended to the 
staff members, the job would have been more difficult 
than it was. 

It was the job of these two men to integrate per- 
sonalities, decide the merits of pitcures and copy, 
and give the always needed words of advice.

Military Is Well 
Organized at Kent 



American military history, individual weapons, 
drill, command, and organization of the Army are 
only a part of the various subjects studied in ROTC 
classes. 

Qualified cadets entering either branch of the 
military program offered at Kent must study the mis- 
sion and functions of the arms and services, commun- 
ications and army operation. 

Four honorary military outfits are active in the 
many extracurricular activities that are offered to the 
cadet . . . helping to present a challenge to the men 
and maintain brotherhood.

Military aspects of geography and the impact of airpower are topics for discussion by AFROTC cadets. 



The Reserve Officers Training Corps at Kent State 
University was formed on the campus in order to se- 
lect and train qualified men to serve as officers in 
either the Army or Air Force. 

The program is aimed at helping the individual 
student to develop his qualities of leadership, which 
he will need as an officer in the armed forces or as a 
civilian in private enterprise.

A blue and white cord worn over the left shoulder

Both Army and Air Force ROTC ore eligible for mem-

Founded with the purpose to give ROTC students 
a basic background in drill and leadership, the group 
utilizes tactical information as well as tactical field 
problems. 



Drill meets and mock battles are held to give the 
members an insight into modern warfare. 

Each year, the ROTC students elect a coed to act 
as honorary sponsor ... in which capacity she reigns 
over dances and parades held by the outfit. Pershing 
Rifles men participate in the annual ROTC Military 
Ball and in flag raising ceremonies at University func- 
tions. 

Pershing Rifles was organized at Kent State in 
1 949 . . . two years later admitting the Air Force ROTC 
into the group. Through their basic training, students 
of this military group maintain the standard for good 
soldiers.

Company K-1 



Busy is the word to best describe the activities of 
Company K, First Regiment of the National Honorary 
Society of Pershing Rifles. 

Staffed by outstanding ROTC men on campus, 
Company K participated in numerous University acti- 
vities, including Campus Day, Armed Forces Day and 
Memorial Day. Members aided the Kent city March 
of Dimes drive, adding their efforts to those of merch- 
ants in a street corner solicitation. 

In addition, the Company K drill team competed 
for honors in the annual state meet. Members also 
provided between-half ceremonies at the final home 
football game of the season. 

Socially, the cadets sponsored their traditional 
winter formal plus many informal date parties. Men 
were pledged during fall quarter with formal initiation 
ceremonies capping their pledge session. Each year, 
the group also selects a co-ed as sponsor. An open 
smoker began the fall Company K activities.

Grades ore primary for affiliation with Scabbard 
and Blade, but military know-how is also stressed. 
Topping the group's many campus activities are parti- 
cipation in Homecoming, Armed Forces Day, Memor- 
ial Day and Campus Day. 

It is the men of Scabbard and Blade who form the 
traditional Sabre Arch for the Military Ball queen 
and her attendants at the annual formal dance, co- 
sponsored by the Army and Air Force ROTC units on 
campus. 

Time is found also for the sponsorship of an an- 
nual dance held yearly at the Ravenna Arsenal. 

Nationally, the organization dates back to 1904, 
when it was founded at the University of Wisconsin. 
The Kent chapter is Company M-8.

Arnold Air Society 



Highest goal attainable by Kent State's "marching 
men in blue" is membership in Arnold Air Society, 
notional military honorary for undergraduate Air 
Force ROTC cadets. 

Air strategy is a primary problem confronting 
these cadets and through a series of lectures, they 
learn more and more about the art of deceptive air 
power. Professional speakers highlight the group's 
meetings, often offering colored slides or movies to 
better illustrate their topics. 

Pledges to Arnold Air Society are selected on the 
basis of their scholarship and are junior and senior 
men who have excelled in the ROTC classroom. These 
future commissioned or reserve officers ore thoroughly 
screened before being invited to join the elite ranks. 

Established on the Kent State University campus a 
short five years ago, Arnold Air Society honors those 
men who are outstanding within the undergraduate 
ranks of the Air Force ROTC.

On November 3, 1 955, the Kent State chapter of 
Basic Cadet Honor Squadron became a member group 
of the Sabre Squadron. 

This organization is composed of forty-four mem- 
ber attachments with headquarters at the University 
of Omaha. 

Field trips to Canton, Youngstown and Eglin Air 
Force Base in Florida are part of the agenda that the 
group participates in. 

An important part of the group is their sponsoring 
of the Kent Ground Observer Corps post which is 
located on the top of Kent Hall. 

Composed of freshmen and sophomore ROTC stu- 
dents, as basic cadets, this group has the some re- 
quirements as the original honor squadron. 

Membership in the organization requires a 2.5 
ROTC average and a 2.25 over all accumulative. 
Meetings are more on the entertainment side with 
films depicting Air Force life and new air force de- 
velopments.

Wesley Foundation 

Students of all faiths ore invited to participate in 
functions of KSU's local Wesley Foundation. The 
foundation is only one of many supported by the 
Methodist church. 

Among other activities, Wesleyons take part in 
intromurals, dramatics, choir, Bible Study and wor- 
ship groups. 

The group also hos its own newspaper. Annually 
they hold a Fall and Winter retreat. 

If you find yourself in the mood for a home 
cooked dinner, these students con be found cooking 
their own cost supper Sunday nights at the Metho- 
dist Church. 

After the dinner, members have discussions or a 
program and worship service. 

This year, the Rev. Henry H. Crane, pastor of 
Grace Methodist church in Detroit spoke during Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week on campus. The prominent 
preacher and lecturer has spoken at many colleges 
throughout the country.

Sigma Theta Epsilon 



Religion is the leading light in the lives of the 
men of Sigma Theta Epsilon, Methodist men's hon- 
orary. However, although the establishment of Christ- 
ian ideals on campus are high in the goals of the 
Sigma chapter, there is time for social enjoyment, too. 

Locally, the group offers its services as ushers for 
Sunday services at the Methodist church. It also aids 
in the annual presentation of Religious Emphasis 
Week. 

By the same standard, the men of Sigma Theta 
Epsilon join with their sister sorority. Kappa Phi, in 
the sponsorship of an annual Sweetheart dance. They 
also hold a Founder's Day weekend each spring quar-

Nor are they lax in campus participation. Through 
competent concentration, they join in Campus Day 
and Homecoming activities and annually sponsor an 
entrant in the Songfest contest. 

Service programs, such as aiding in the annual 
World Service Fund collection, are also included in 
the yearly projects of Sigma Theta Epsilon

Newmanites join prior to eight o'clocks for o cooperative celebration of Mass, held daily in the Student Union 



Newman Club 



Lost year the Newman Club undertook the re- 
modeling of a new center. This year, they have gone 
a step further in purchasing land next to KSU's 
campus for a Catholic chapel and student center. 

Parish collections from St. Patrick's church and 
a donation from the Youngstown bishop paid for the 
new property. 

Some 1200 to 1500 Catholic students on campus 
will be served by the proposed new center. The build- 
ing will include among other things, a library, social 
hall, chapel, kitchen and quarters for the chaplain 
and custodian. 

A drive for funds began by the club as soon as 
the purchase was made known. The club's business is 
directed by the Rev. John J. Daum. 

Newman Club activities include two all-University 
formals and frequent informal dances, intramural 
sports, and others. The group also puts out its own 
paper, The Newmanite.

Lutheran Student Fellowship 




For the pause that refreshes the spiritual mind, 
students are welcomed to drop into the Lutheran 
Student Center. Here they will be greeted by members 
of the Lutheran Student Fellowship, 

This group was organized to afford Lutheran stu- 
dents monthly religious activities so they may better 
understand their religion and lead a more Christian 
life. In this way, they are performing a better service 
to Kent and their communities. 

The Lutheranites are proud of their Student Cen- 
ter which is open all day and is furnished with such 
relaxing articles as card tables, TV, periodicals, and 
religious books, all available to the students. 

The Lutheran Fellowship rounds out its program 
by providing social activities for the members. These 
include the Freshmen reception and the annual Town 
and Gown dinner. Nor would the year be complete 
without the popular winter and summer camping 
trips. These events are made possible by hayrides, 
cost dinners and square dances.

Gamma Delta 



Not to be confused with Delta Gamma, national 
sorority on Kent's campus, the Delta Gamma chapter 
of Gamma Delta, is an international association of 
Lutheran students. 

Gamma Delta meets weekly in the Lutheran 
Student Center for cost suppers on Sunday nights and 
on Wednesday nights for special programs at which 
time either films are shown or guest speakers talk. 

Winter quarter, the students hold a regional 
winter camp. They also attended the dedication of 
the University Lutheran Chapel in Columbus, Ohio 
During Religious Emphasis Week, the group showed 
the film, "Martin Luther" which was well attended 

Gamma Delta is a relatively new organization, 
having gone active on April 4, 1954. In two years, 
its membership has climbed and kept a steady 
maximum. 

The first anniversary of the chapter was cele- 
brated on April 13, 1955 with a special banquet.

Religion Thru Service 



Eight national Protestant denominations are rep- 
resented in UCF — United Christian Fellowship. UCF 
is one of five such religious groups in the United 
States. 

The denominations represented are: Baptist, Con- 
gregational. Disciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evan- 
gelical and Reformed, Evangelical United Brethren, 
Presbyterian, and Universalist. 

Retreats are held each spring and fall. During 
winter quarter, a semi-formal dance is held. Other 
activities carried on by UCF are Bible study every 
Thursday night and a faith study on Monday nights. 

A new service started within the past year by 
UCF is the workday. UCFers sign a list for times when 
they are available to work for people in the commun- 
ity and are paid a fee which they shore with the re- 
ligious group. 

Another well-known service performed by this 
group are the sales of sandwiches and coffee to the 
dorms and fraternities. They have now added ice 
cream and milk to this line. 




"Allow me", remarks one UCFer to another as he 
wields the pot at the Sunday evening cost supper. 



The cost suppers of UCF hove proved to be some of the cultural and social highlights of the year for the members.

United Christian Fellowship 



UCF brings in different speakers, usually pastors 
from neighboring communities to speak at their cof- 
fee hours which are held on Wednesday afternoons. 

In line with this, UCF sends out deputation teams 
who attend the eight different denominational 
churches and perform in part of the service or some- 
times take over on entire service themselves. 

Many religious leaders of the nation are closely 
watching this group, since UCF is a relatively new 
organization and just out of the experimental stage. 
A board of trustees composed of thirty-six ministers 
and laymen, together with professors and administra- 
tors of the University, supervise the policies, personnel 
and general operations of UCF. 

Although eight churches moke up this group, any 
student, no matter what denomination, may join 
United Christian Fellowship. UCF meetings some- 
times bring in as many as sixty students to hear the 
different topics that are brought up. Others join the 
cost suppers held on Sunday nights. 




It's time for serious thought to this business of wor- 
ship — so UCF'ers take time out for religious clinics.

Aided by a new counsellor. Rabbi Theodore Stein- 
berg of Warren, Hillel experienced its finest year on 
the Kent campus. 

In November the members of Hillel held their 
first annual installation dinner dance. Despite the 
inclement weather, the dance was well attended and 
marked a fine starting point for the Jewish students 
on campus. A bowling party, square dance and fes- 
tival parties also highlighted the social calendar. 

Social activities are not the real purpose of the 
Hillel Councellorship, however. Formed for the pur- 
pose of giving Jewish students a common meeting 
ground the Kent Hillel foundation has succeeded ably 
in this respect. 

During Religious Emphasis Week Hillel also spon- 
sored a brief service before the speech of Rabbi Abba 
Hillel Silver. This program was to give everyone a 
general idea of the fundamental purposes of the 
Jewish religion.

The Honorary and Professional Organizations 



Delta Sigma Pi 



Frequent trips to near-by industries highlight the 
Delta Sigma Pi calendar. In addition, the 2.25 point 
average required for membership keeps the men near 
the top in over-all scholarship. 

Bock on the social front, the Delta Sigs each 
year hold a dinner dance, a Founder's Day banquet 
and a Monte Carlo party. Also included on the an- 
nual agendo is a series of date parties. 

Thirty hours of credit in the College of Business 
Administration is another prerequisite for membership 
in Delta Sigma Pi. 

Nationally, the organization was founded in No- 
vember of 1907 at New York University. It includes 
eighty-five collegiate chapters. Symbolic of the Delta 
Sigs is its flower — the red rose. It is the some flower 
that is presented to the dote of each member at the 
annual winter formal.

Business Is a Beacon 



Delta Sigma Pi and the advancement of business 
administration on the University campus go hand in 
hand. Ever since 1942 when the business and com- 
merce professional fraternity came to Kent State, the 
brothers of Delta Sig have been active in University 
affairs. 

Although business is the tie that binds the men 
together, they do not lack social life. Each memorable 
campus event — Campus Day, Homecoming, Pork 
Barrel — finds them actively participating for shiny 
gold first place trophies. 

Actually, the fraternity has been a member of the 
campus organizational setup since 1938 when the 
local group was recognized. It was then known as 
Delta Kappa Psi, a name to be discarded four years 
later. 

Each year, the group plans monthly dinner meet- 
ings which feature top-notch speakers in the field of 
business and commerce. Moreover, the men of Delta 
Sigma Pi present an annual award to the student in 
the College of Business Administration who graduates 
with the highest cumulative point average. 




The Dean came to dinner and stayed to host a deluge 
of queries from the interested men of Delta Sigma Pi. 




Singing proves popular with these business-minded 
men of Delta Sigma Pi, notional commerce group.

Institute of Architects 




An ingenue on the University campus, the local 
unit of the Institute of Architects was granted a stu- 
dent charter in February of 1955. Since that time, 
the organization has grown by leaps and bounds. 

With a united interest in the profession of archi- 
tecture, members work together to acquire noted 
speakers in the field plus planning dinner meeting 
and field trips. 

The group's main project is an annual meeting for 
the northeastern Ohio AIA architects. Included on 
the program is judging of local talent entries in a 
competitive contest. 

Professionally, the group is an aid to members. It 
assures them of associate membership in any senior 
chapter of the Institute. Seniors are also aided in 
finding employment through affiliation with the 
student chapter. Primarily, the chapter is interested 
in professional growth, rather than social. It in- 
creases understanding between student and profes- 
sional men, and prides itself on fellowship and co- 
operation.

Businessmen and women help to prepare for future 
careers in industry, commerce, government and man- 
agement through KSU's Society for the Advancement 
of Management. 

SAM is open to all sophomore students in the 
College of Business who maintain a 2.5 cumulative 
average. The society was founded for the purpose of 
helping business administration students to broaden 
their understanding of classroom experiences. Stu- 
dents also may become aware of advantages of be- 
coming acquainted with men well-known in the 
business field. 

The annual spring banquet boasts of a famous 
speaker from the business field. Members of the so- 
ciety attend speeches and banquets sponsored by the 
Akron chapter of SAM. This also proves a he'p in 
meeting future employers. 

A highlight of the annual Society for the Advance- 
ment of Management banquet is the naming of an 
outstanding student in the business management 
field. The benefits of scientific advancement are 
shown this way.

Promoting photojournalism and providing pictures

that Kent's honorary photographic group performs. 
Kappa Alpha Mu, the organization in question, sup-

Women planning on a journalism career find 
membership in Theta Sigma Phi a boost to their as-

Sigma Delta Chi 



Newspaper and public relations men of the future 
are the members of Sigma Delta Chi, national profes-

But the men of SDX do not confine their efforts 
solely to things of a newspaper nature. Tops on their 
yearly agenda is the sponsorship of Rowboat Regatta, 
an all-University social event. 

In addition, the SDXers join with the Akron Pro- 
fessional chapter for dinner meetings at which 
nationally known speakers are featured. 

More in line with their field of major endeavor, they 
aid in the presentation of the annual Northeastern 
Ohio Scholastic Press Association clinic at which they 
single-handedly sponsor the dramatized news event. 

Each spring, Sigma Delta Chi presents a trophy 
to the outstanding senior journalism graduate at the 
publications banquet. In three years on campus, the 
SDX local chapter has attempted to fulfill the national 
motto, "He serves best who serves the truth."

"Serving I Live" is the motto behind which the 
men of Blue Key stand firm, united in their endeavors 
to uphold and cement the University's high standards. 

In the service fraternity's ranks can be found the 
majority of the campus BMOC's — chosen for their 
leadership and scholarship. Membership in Blue Key 
comes only through constant devotion and desire to 
excel in the many cogs of University machinery. 

Serving as hosts for Campus Day and Homecoming 
ore but a minute part of the duties which each Blue 
Key member strives to fulfill. The men also join Card- 
inal Key, women's service group, in the co-sponsor- 
ship of Penny Carnival, the proceeds of which are do- 
nated to a scholarship fund. 

But perhaps the service for which Blue Key is best 
known among undergraduates is the annual editing 
and publishing of the Student Directory without which 
many a campus romance would not blossom and many 
a Christmas card would be misdirected. Service, is in- 
deed offered by the men of Blue Key.

Cardinal Key 



Tops in University service, scholarship and lead- 
ership — these are the qualifications for membership 
in Cardinal Key, women's service honorary. 

Open only to upperc!ass women, membership in 
Cardinal Key represents the highest achievement by 
a co-ed. Eligibility requires a 2.5 cumulative point 
overage and versatility of activities. Members are 
selected on a point basis. 

Among the projects of the group is co-sponsorship 
of Penny Carnival with Blue Key, the men's service 
honorary, and the presentation each year of the Card- 
inal Key scholarship. A tea is given in honor of the 
recipient during fall quarter. 

Come Campus Day, members of Cardinal Key 
form an honor procession for the May Queen and 
members of her court. 

Pledges are recognized by the symbolic red pledge 
ribbon and the out-sized cardinal key they are re- 
quired to wear prior to activation. This year, the 
group added a key emblem for the local chapter.

Future Teachers 
of America 



Active in many University pies, the members of 
FTA frequently sponsor high school groups who desire 
tours of Kent State's facilities. They also plan activ- 
ities for these groups and are active in northeastern 
Ohio pre-teaching activities and conferences. 

Freshmen first learn of the many-faceted inter- 
ests of FTA when they attend the organization's Frosh 
Tea at which the newcomers mingle with the Presi- 
dent, deans and faculty members. 

Nor is the group inactive socially — it annually 
joins with other campus groups for parties and picnics. 
Each spring a joint meeting is held with the Industrial 
Arts club. A weiner roast is also a high point on the 
FTA spring calendar. 

More in line with their future careers, the Future 
Teachers of America club holds an annual Christmas 
party for the underprivileged children in the Kent 
area. At this function, they play collective Santa 
Clous to youngsters similar to those they may some- 
day be called upon to instruct.

Santa Claus Corps Aid 



Career-minded Education majors find fellowship 
and inspiration among their own kind in the ranks of 
FTA — Future Teachers of America. 

Training for the coming generation of school 
children are the club's members through speakers and 
practice of their own choosing. Included in the mem- 
bership are students majoring in many fields — his- 
tory, biology, industrial arts, and home economics — 
to name but a few. 

No lines are drawn as to interest. The FTAers 
may be interested in kindergarten-primary, elemen- 
tary, or secondary education. However, they are unit- 
ed in the common interest of better and more well- 
rounded education for the children-to-be of their 
classmates. 

It is not surprising that the organization's en- 
rollment has increased amazingly through the years 
for Kent State University has long been noted for its 
outstanding College of Education. Currently, the club 
boasts a membership which approaches upwards into 
the hundred mark. 




Playing Santo Clous provides extra-special holiday joy 
for FTAers who host Kent's underprivileged children.

Another organization that tries to bring about 
an improved relationship among KSU's students, is 
the women's physical education honorary, Delta Psi 
Kappa. 

Open to girls with either a major or minor in hpe, 
and an overall average of 2.5 plus a B average in their 
physical education classes, the organization stresses

Chemical Society 

When someone hears of the name Chemical 
Society, a picture of serious-minded students bending 
over their test tubes comes to mind. But KSU's chem- 
ical society has its lighter side as we'l as a serious 
side, with field trips, group-spon:ored banquets and 
picnics. The organization gives science students pride 
in their profession and provides an opportunity for 
members to meet men in the field.

Relatively new on Kent's campus is Delta Omicron, 
a national professional music fraternity. Two objec- 
tives of the group are to raise scholarship standards 
and promote the progress of American music and 
women composers on the American scene. 



Music Educators Club 



Delta Omicron 



There are problems in the field of music teachings 
as well as in the other fields of teaching, and in order 
to acquaint those who plan to enter the profession, the 
Music Educators club was born. 

Social as well as educational functions are held 
by the club and several members participate in nation- 
al conferences.

Phi Gamma Nu 



The female counterpart of Delta Sigma Pi, men's 
business honorary, is Phi Gamma Nu, women's busi- 
ness honorary. 

Serving as a social as well as professional sorority. 
Phi Gamma Nu was established at Kent State in 1 951 . 

Membership requires a 2.7 average in business 
administration courses plus other curriculum. En- 
couragement of scholarship is provided by a loan 
fund which helps members to keep on with their edu- 
cation. 

The honorary also presents a scholarship key to 
the senior woman with the highest business adminis- 
tration average. Other projects are done by the group 
for both the University and the community. 

At business meetings, distinguished women in the 
field of business are invited to be guest speakers. At 
this time, the girls learn of the important role that has 
been taken over by women in the business field. Know- 
ledge and inspiration are given to the members 
through these talks.

Boy scouts who make good are the men of Alpha 
Phi Omega. One of the requirements for member- 
ship into this organization states that a member 
must have previous training in this group and the de- 
sire to do service. 

Not an honorary. Alpha Phi Omega functions as 
the service group on campus providing errand runners, 
baby sitters, floor sweepers or what have you for the 
school. 

A national service fraternity, men of Alpha Phi 
Omega come from every field of learning. One of their 
most well-known contributions to the University is 
that of the Victory Bell which is rung every time there 
is a Kent victory. 

Sounding like a senior boy scout organization, the 
fraternity stresses service to the University, the coun- 
try, the community and to themselves. 

Alpha Phi Omega sponsors the annual barber- 
shop quartet contest which gives the amateur groups 
their chance to show off warbling talents.

Industrial Arts Club 



Drawn together by a common interest in designing, 
building and planning, members of the Industrial Arts 
club meet with each other to further these interests. 

The organization is active socially and culturally 
on campus and even takes an energetic part in in- 
tramural sports. 

Club programs include speakers in the industrial 
arts field who lend their experience and knowledge to 
the members. On the social side, the I. A. club holds 
a barn dance with the Elementary Education club, an 
annual semi-formal and a banquet with architect and 
aviation majors. 

Art exhibits, woodworking, and house designing 
are projects the club works on throughout the year. 
A chance to develop their creativity and to work on 
hobbies or projects is given to the members of the 
I. A. club along with critical guidance by instructors in 
the field. Members also experience the judgment 
of students who come to view their exhibits on display 
in the Industrial Arts building.

Pi Omega Pi 




A national organization that dates back to 1923, 
Pi Omega Pi is designed to nurture ideals of service 
and scholarship. 

The organization was started on Kent's campus in 
1953 and has been thriving ever since. Pi Omega Pi 
is a national honorary fraternity for business educa- 
tion majors and requires high standards for member- 
ship into its group. 

The honorary meets twice a month at which times 
projects for the year are planned and executed. The 
group performs services for both the University and 
civic organizations. They also prepare materials for 
classes in business education. 

Members of this business group are selected for 
their scholarship, citizenship, service and ethics. A 
3.0 overage in education and business subjects and 
a 2.5 average in all other courses taken are also 
required. 

Membership in this group is considered an honor 
by those in the business education field.

Flying Club 



Flying appeals to many people because there 
seems to be a certain glamour attached to it. 

For Kent State's students who feel like taking off 
into the wild blue yonder, there is a club on the 
campus which tries to fulfill their desire. The Flying 
Club provides the planes at a minimum cost, and 
some instruction. They have in their possession, 
several light planes and a glider. 

Using the facilities of the University airport on 
Route 5, the club holds flying exhibitions from this 
field. 

Many of the members of the club ore veterans 
with flying experience, but newcomers are welcomed 
too. Meetings are held wherein the members discuss 
the latest in aviation techniques and progress. But 
for pure enjoyment, they take off and fly their planes. 

The only requirement that is needed to join, is 
the desire to fly. The group has a corporation charter 
granted to them by the state and was one of the first 
of its kind to be established.

the field. 

Recognizing the importance of research work, 
membership in the group is open to students and out- 
standing men in industrial arts. A prospective mem- 
bership booklet was a recently completed project of 
the fraternity. 




CoUegiates 



With their sights set on attaining recognition as 
a local fraternity, the CoUegiates this year made rapid 
strides toward their goal. During their first year as an 
organized social group, the members made their mark 
on campus, wearing gray jackets with the red, black 
and white emblem. 

In University activities, the banner of the CoUegi- 
ates flew over a Homecoming decoration. Campus Day 
float and Pork Barrel skit. And on the social front, 
parties galore decorated the calendar. 

Collegiate teams flourished in intramural ath- 
letics. Purchase of the former Sig Ep house on Lincoln 
street assured them a permanent place on the Univer- 
sity campus. Weekly, the chapter makes an award to 
an outstanding member.

Only Local Integrates 
Itself on Campus 

The idea for a new social organization at Kent 
State started in November of 1954, With the Univer- 
sity's permission, seven men rented a house, chose a 
name, elected officers and settled down to the task 
of keeping their idea alive. 

The original seven members operated well as a 
unit and soon word got around. By the end of spring 
quarter, twenty-six men called themselves the "Col- 
legiates." 

Last fall found eighteen members back at Kent. 
The club's new location on South Lincoln brought the 
men closer to campus activities and along with the 
tedious work of redecorating the house, helped them 
develop that necessary feeling of brotherhood. 

The Collegiate's recent incorporation by the State 
of Ohio was another step forward. Under the compe- 
tent guidance of the faculty advisors, Mr. Robert 
Finley and Mr. Louis Harris, the club has laid a firm 
foundation. 

Qualifications for membership though not rigid, 
are strictly adherred to. The ultimate goal of the club 
is to pledge a national fraternity. 




Time for a Collegian coffee break! And the brothers 
assemble about the house stove to refuel on hot Java. 




A bull session and a chance to discuss the day's campus activity offer a welcome 
diversion for the well-dressed members of Kent's local campus fraternity. 



Vets Club 



Now a three-year veteran itself, KSU's veterans 
club has increased in membership over the period. In 
the beginning, the club was little more than an idea 
firmly implanted in the minds of four returning Korea 
servicemen. 

From that, it became a leader on campus voice, the 
voice of the former G.I. Today its membership ros- 
ter numbers in the hundreds. Its projects include 
participation in various campus activities, and these 
activities have not been curtailed by the growing 
surge of veterans to "go Greek." 

The power of the veterans' organization has been 
felt in all facets of University activity — at the polls, 
within the student administration and on the social 
front. In addition, it has proved a powerful organiza- 
tion in obtaining well-deserved recognition for the 
undergraduate G.l.'s. 

Included on the group's calendar are a series of 
fortnightly meetings, social events and an opportunity 
to make new friends among their own contemporaries.

Inter-Group 



Inter-racial and inter-religious . . . that's Inter- 
Group of Kent State. Purely a local organization, this 
club was founded in 1 954. 

Off to a good start, the group took first prize in 
the independent men's division on Campus Day. They 
also sponsored National Brotherhood Week during 
the 1956 winter quarter. 

Another project of Inter-Group is to bring boys in 
from the Hudson Boys' Camp to see the various plays 
and programs that are given on campus. They hold 
parties just for the club members and other social 
events that ore given on a non-pay basis. During fall 
quarter, several members attended a Human Rela- 
tions Conference in Willoughby, Ohio, which was 
sponsored by the Cleveland Council of Human Rela- 
tions. 

For Religious Emphasis Week, Inter-Group formed 
panels and gave talks before the other religious groups 
on campus. Planning to build their membership and 
enter more competitive activities will keep this club 
busy in the future.

Custom decrees that each year eight seniors are 
selected by the editorial staff of the Chestnut Burr as 
outstanding on the basis of University service and 
scholarship. 

Those selected tops for 1956 are well-representa- 
tive of a versatile graduating class. They have served 
the interests of Kent State University far beyond the 



confines of classroom effort and have excelled in their 
service. 

Trademarks of all these seniors are friendly smiles 
and they are known to seniors and upperclassmen alike 
for their devotion to any job which they might under- 
take to perform. Congratulations to the outstanding 
seniors of 1956! ! !

Fraternities — -- p. 1 92-21 9 

Sororities ...p. 220-235 

Dormitories p. 236-247 




Important in the development of well- 
rounded adults are the so-called "living 
groups" — those University organizations 
which offer experience in learning to get 
along socially as well as academically. 

Such are the various fraternities, sororities 
and dormitories on campus — an experience in 
cooperation, in conversation, and in man- 
agement. 

"Living groups" provide the other side of 
the University coin — the side of education 
which deals not in grades, but in results. The 
Greeks form a tightly-knit society of their 
own on campus and together and individually 
they work for achievement for the University. 

Competition sparks this "living group" so- 
ciety. Always there is the spirit of winning — 
in social competition, in athletics, in a variety 
of unrelated areas. But, "living" is the lesson.

Panhellenic Council 




With three delegates from each sorority making 
up the organization, Panhellenic acts as the mediator 
for the Greek groups and unaffiliated women. 

Purposely set up to encourage personal develop- 
ment of its members, Panhellenic strives to make 
sorority life an opportunity for the affiliated coeds. 

Year after year, the Council has determined rush 
rules, procedures, schedules and penalties for the 
eight-member sororities on campus. Attempting to 
create a better system of rushing, freshman rushing 
was deferred until Winter quarter, putting sororities 
on the same basis as fraternities. 

As a step towards creating a high standard of 
scholastic achievement, Panhellenic presents an an- 
nual Scholarship cup to the sorority maintaining the 
highest average. The award is made on Honors Day 
when it is presented to the president of the outstanding 
group. Cooperating with other women's organizations 
on campus, Panhellenic helps to put out the Freshman 
women's handbook, "The Kent Coed."

Interfraternity Council 

Interfraternity Council is the main regu- 
lating body for fraternities and freshmen . . . 
composed of the president of each fraternity 
and one delegate. 

IPC's official purpose is to better the rela- 
tions between fraternities and the University. 
Constitutional changes to benefit both the po- 
tential pledge and the fraternity were incor- 
porated this year in an effort to interest more 
men in Greek life. 

Co-sponsors of the first Greek Week, IPC 
brought the fraternity situation before the 
entire student body, through its system of ex- 
change dinners, community help and campus 
activities. The council also awards trophies 
to the intramural winners in the nine major 
sports and presents an award to the fraternity 
with the highest scholarship for the school 
year.

Legal 'Fish Bowls'

Alpha Epsilon Pi's goldfish bowls and ping 
pong bails combined to bring the Gold and 
Blue a first place trophy in the annual Penny 
Carnival . . . and the AEPi float was really 
the "bugs" as the fly spray went out of com- 
mission halfway through the parade on Cam- 
pus Day. 

In activities, the men of S. Lincoln are found 
in every phase of campus life . . . Blue Key, 
class office and Hillel. Political-wise, the 
fraternity pulled out of independent politics 
and returned to the Blue-Gold party during 
the foil. 

Alpha Epsilon Pi presented the only ser- 
ious theme during Pork Barrel, with their 
theme, "This Is Kent." Athletically, the chap- 
ter also claims the three-time champ of the 
University table tennis matches. 

Spring quarter proved to be the undoing 
of many of the brothers as they found out that 
the AEPi sun porch was too sunny ... a new 
recreation room, built by the men, took over 
the basement completely and provided more 
eating and studying space . . . and to top it 
off, the first floor of the house was remodeled. 




Raiding the icebox is a favorite pastime at the Alpha 
Epsilon Pi house as evidenced by brothers in action. 



It's relaxin' time for the AEPi's as they settle down for an evening of TV enjoyment.

Founded at Williams College in 1834 

Colors: Blue and Gold 

Established at Kent in December, 1948 

First national fraternity at Kent 

Holds a Homecoming banquet each year 

Only the Very Best- 
Tops in U, S. A. 

Delta Upsilon's Kent chapter received the 
highest recognition their national can be- 
stow . . . the DU's were named as the out- 
standing chapter in the United States and 
Canada . . . they also received the most im- 
proved scholarship award, which is given to 
the Delta Upsilon chapter which has shown 
the most improvement in the previous year. 

On the Kent campus, the DU's also con- 
tinued their fine record. Bongo drums and 
fine choreography combined to give the chap- 
ter their third straight Pork Barrel trophy. 
The Rotary Club award for the best theme in 
the Campus Day parade also went to the 
fraternity. 

Other achievements the fraternity chalked 
up were the all-sports trophy, the KSU quiz 
trophy, won by a three-man team, and the 
top award for grades among fraternities on 
KSU's campus. 

Socially, the men hold annual winter and 
spring formals . . . while the K-Girl ceremony 
on Campus Day has become a symbol and in- 
stitution, not only to Delta Upsilon, but to all 
Kent undergrads and alumni. 




A scarred pigskin topped DU's Homecoming attempt. 

Anthony Vinciguerra died early in 
November following a fatal kidney 
injury. A former Marine, he was

Socially, the men of the scarlet, white and 
green annually hold a winter and spring formal 
. . . also, there is the yearly Rascal's Romp, spon- 
sored by the pledge class every year. 

Activity-wise, the men sponsor, along with Sig- 
ma Nu, the Kappa Sigma Nu Day ... to show the 
co-operation that can exist between Greek organi- 
zations. The Kappa Sigs won the District Scholar- 
ship for the third year in a row, topping all other 
Kappa Sigma chapters in Ohio. 

Looking forward to the proposed Fraternity 
Row, the brothers have set up a house fund to pro- 
vide for the Kappa Sig's when the Row is com- 
pleted. However, they have not been idle with 
their present house . . . having redecorated inside 
and purchased new furniture. 

In sports, the Kappa Sigs won the intramural 
fraternity swimming meet.

Make Up For 
Lost Time 



The newest national fraternity on campus 
has already become well integrated into the 
role of fraternity . . . Phi Delt's annual party 
for the deaf children of Kent is an outstanding 
example of the part the chapter is playing, 
not only in campus life, but also in community 
life. 

The yearly winter formal is the social high- 
light of the year for the men of Phi Delta 
Theta . . . also the She Delta Theta week, 
begun last year, continued in fine manner as 
Kent coeds went through seven days of work 
similar to their male counterparts. 

For two years, the Phi Delts have been intra- 
mural football champions and for one year, 
have been all-University champs. 

Active in campus affairs, the men of the 
blue and white claim class officers. Student 
Council officers and members in other im- 
portant functions. 

Initiation services were held for the men 
of Phi Gamma Theta, the local organization, 
which is now known as Phi Delta Theta, who 
graduated before the chapter went national 
. . . and then there is their well-known tug-of- 
war held at Rowboat Regatta. 




Phi Delta Theta's Homecoming decoration scored 
high in the judges' eyes — winning third place. 





Looking ahead to Campus Day songfest competition, the Phi Delts find that 
melody spells leisure as well evidenced by this eager group of songsters.

Colors: silver and magenta

Trophies Take Over 
Top Priority 

Phi Sigma Kappa spent a busy year making 
room for new trophies on their mantel . . . 
. . . they were the winners in the annual May 
Day Relays fraternity division last Spring. 
When Homecoming, 1955, rolled around, the 
chapter had another new trophy. This one was 
for first place among fraternities for their 
decorations. 

Socially, the annual Phi Sigma Kappa Snow- 
ball dance was held during the winter quarter 
with appropriate weather . . . when the temp- 
erature changed, the men began getting ready 
for their spring formal. 

Active in intramural sports, the Phi Sigs 
took a part in the University sports program. 

During the spring quarter, the men co- 
hosted the Phi Sigma Kappa Region Four 
Conclave with the Akron chapter. Combin- 
ing their two prime requisites of superior 
scholarship and social living, the men of 324 
Main continued to make progress in both 
fields. 

Active in all University affairs, the Phi Sigs 
work together, study together and play to- 
gether to form a well knit social unit. 




There's no end to the plague of pledging — at least not 
at the Phi Sigma Kappa house. Pledges, under the 
watchful eye of that first-place falcon, mop up. 



It's the late, late movie that provides itr^piration to Phi Sigs before starting the nightly grind

SAE Events 



Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

Founded at the University of Alabama in 1856 

Organized on campus in 1949 by Canton exten- 
sion students 

Started as a local fraternity, Sigma Delta 

One of 127 active chapters 

Flower : violet 

Largest fraternity in the United States 



Sigma Alpha Epsilon finds time to combine 
athletic, social and scholastic activities. In intra- 
mural sports, SAE's copped titles and champion- 
ships in basketball and softball. 

The chapter was also victorious in the Campus 
Day songfest, winning the first place trophy . . . not 
content with these trophies, the Sig Alphs took 
second place in Rowboat Regatta, May Day Relays, 
and interfraternity golf. The men also finished 
third in the fraternity division of intramural 
bowling. 

BMOC's include an editor of the Stater, secre- 
tary of Interfraternity Council, and chairman of 
the Nu-K political party. Members of Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon ore also active in varsity sports, five mem- 
bers being lettermen. 

On the social agenda, one exchange dinner per 
week is usually on the program . . . the Anniver- 
sary Ball, held in December, celebrates SAE's in- 
stallation into the national fraternity. Queen of 
the dance is a Kent coed who is chosen by Dick 
Powell, an SAE who made good in Hollywood . . . 
during spring quarter the Sweetheart Formal is the 
highlight of the social season. 




Sig Alphs will never lack for musical entertainment 
as long as this combo is providing the refrains. 



Scanning the scores are the new-hungry sports ad- 
dicts of SAE compete with a kibitzing trio.

Sigma Nu joins with its fellow fraternity, 
Kappa Sigma, yearly to co-sponsor the Kappa 
Sigma Nu dance and football game . . . Also 
high on the social program is the annual White 
Rose formal and the Scummer's Hop . . . The 
latter is sponsored by the pledges in honor of 
the active chapter . . . 

Big Men On Campus are no oddity among 
the brothers of Sigma Nu . . . Inc'uded in the 
ranks are the presidents of Blue Key, Men's 
Student association and the senior class . . . 
Officers representing Sigma Nu are repre- 
sented on Student Council, Varsity K and on 
athletic teams . . . 

Typical of the local outfit are the large 
placords worn during "Help Week" by bash- 
ful pledges . . . The founding of Sigma Nu 
dates back to the local group founded at Kent 
State Normal college in 1924 . . . Sigma Nu 
has been national since March of 1949 with 
headquarters located at 262 Columbus St. 




Ship of state was the flag-bedecked vessel which 
bore the Sigma Nu hopes in the Campus Day derby. 





Rise and shine is the early morning warhoop among the brothers of Sigma Nu. It's 
a slight dousing for a slow-to-wake member as a cohort wields a full water glass.

New Quarters Net 
Pledge Work 

Sigma Phi Epsiion boasts proudly of its new 
house, the former "Olin Mansion" located at 
402 E. Summit St. . . . The new quarters offer 
the brothers a variety of pledge duties plus 
incentive for active participation . . . An old- 
time German Band is featured at weekend 
Sig Ep functions, providing music and enter- 
tainment galore and for free . . . 

The heart signifies a true Sig Ep, and the 
local men carry out the theme with a red 
door plus the sponsorship of the annual 
"Queen of Hearts" ball . . . Campus leaders 
are prevalent among the brothers as actives 
are found in Blue Key, Alpha Phi Omega, 
athletic publicity and Pershing Rifles . . . 

Although founded as the 13th nationol on 
campus Sigma Phi Epsilon has licked the su- 
perstition, proving active in virtually every 
field of endeavor. 




A "solid" Sigma Phi jazz quintet gets together 
to prove that they con compete with the best. 



That must have been some girl he had a date with, from the expressions of fellow listeners.

Founded nationally at Norwich University, 
Vermont 

Celebrated 100th birthday April 10, 1956 



^Barreling' Along 
Nets Trophy 



Theta Chi made campus history last winter quarter 
as its cry of "unwritten rule" almost upset the Pork 
Barrel . . . The first Stater extra in offset form an- 
nounced the decision of the High Court which allowed 
the brothers to compete in the annual "Barrel" . . . 
And compete they did — winning a trophy for third in 
fraternity competition . . . 

Hard to recognize? . . . Not the Theta Chis! . . 
A real hearse offers transportation for members . . . 
And if it's social life — Theta Chi initiated a "Monster 
Party" . . . Not to mention the ignoble defeat of the 
Akron chapter in the annual sports competition between 
the two groups . . . 

Members are active in Blue-Gold political party, 
Stater, Burr, on High and Traffic court, and Inter- 
fraternity council . . . The chapter also sponsors an an- 
nual Sweetheart formal and an alumni picnic . . . 

The Theta Chis were honored by visits from the 
national vice-president and chap'ain . . . And they 
backed Jan Allshouse as chapter "dream girl" proving 
that the brothers know their girls as Jan went on to 
cop the regional crown.

Elect 'Sweater Girl' 
In Annual Vote 

Theta Kappa Phi members have an eye for 
pulchritude as evidenced by the yearly election 
of a KSU "sweater girl" . . . Also, men of 
Theta Kap co-sponsor the annual Thanks- 
giving weekend "Pi'grim's Prom" aided by 
Newman club . . . 

Athletically, the Theta Kap's captured the 
intramural golf championship for two suc- 
cessive years . . . And socially, they also spon- 
sor a Sweetheart formal and Founders Day 
banquet. 

Activity-wise, members are found or, the 
staff of the Chestnut Burr, Interfraternity 
council and on the Greek Week Planning com- 
mittee . . . Each winter quarter, a week is set 
aside by the Catholic fraternity to stress spir- 
itual life . . . 

Competition is keen among Ohio chapters 
of Theta Kappa Phi with a winner in sports 
competition chosen on a point basis . . . The 
local chapter invariably ranks high through- 
out the state . . . Moreover, it is known for its 
well-stocked library and enthusiastic support 
of all University functions . . . Yearly, the 
outstanding senior is presented a trophy by 
the chapter for participation in campus ac- 
tivities. 




"Aw, come on, give a brother a break" is the entreaty 
of the Theta Kaps as the phone gets a constant workout. 





Card sharks all, the Theta Kappa Phi's ponder their hands in a post-date contest. 
The perennial kibitzers offer strategic advice between shuffles and conversation.

Kappa Alpha Psi 



Kappa Alpha Psi is distinctive among fra- 
ternities on campus as the only inter-racial group 
. . Originally the Scrollers Club, the men be- 
came local fraternity in 1953 as Kappa Psi 
Alpha and were recognized by the Interfraternity 
council. 

In addition, they topped all competition in 
scholarship both winter and spring quarter . . . 
A Halloween party welcomes newcomers to the 
campus in the fall of each year . . Members are 
active in a variety of activities including varsity 
and intramural sports . . 

Highlighting the Kappa Alpha Psi yearly 
agenda, is the annual "Guide Right" program 
designed to give young people a bird's eye view 
into the future . . . Nationally known speakers 
highlight the "Guide" program . . . Kappa Alpha 
Psi was nationalized last December 27-30 and 
became the Gamma Tau chapter at Kent. They 
are now the fourteenth national social fraternity 
at Kent State.

Phi Kappa Tau 



Phi Kappa Tau won campus-wide recognition 
early in the fall quarter as it made the "Big 
Switch" from Nu-K political party to B-G . . . 
The brothers are proud of their campus leaders 
— men active in the senior class, Blue Key, 
Sigma Delta Chi and Interfraternity council. 

Socially, the Phi Tau's cannot be termed in- 
active either . . . Annually, they sponsor a Found- 
er's Day, the Regional Roundup formal and a 
Sweetheart formal . . . Lucky indeed is the co-ed 
selected by vote of the members to reign at the 
latter function . . . 

Nor do the men of Phi Kappa Tau fall down 
scholastically, ranking second both on campus 
and among Domain fraternities . . . And ath- 
letically, they notched a second in the Domain 
basketball tournament.

friendliness and achievements . . . their new 
trophy case offers evidence of a first place award

girls trouble with its many flat tires, not to men- 
tion a collapsible front seat, an energetic fan 
belt and a general 'slow' attitude . . . the "Red 
Carnation" girls hold top campus positions in 
classes, AWS and ACE, and dormitories.

Enjoying their first full year of occupancy since 
the dormitory construction, the residents of South 
Terrace this year joined with their North Terrace hall 
neighbors to sponsor the first dorm formal — a whomp- 
ing success with 400 couples in attendance. 

The South Terrace girls also joined with North to 
make the dorm a gala holiday scene during the week 
prior to Christmas. Festive pine, multi-colored trees 
and huge gold stars added to the decorations. 

Cooperation is the South Terrace key to success. 
And cooperation comes in many guises. Cooperation 
with the dorm counselors, corridor leaders, friends 
and with the twin dormitory. Highlight of any quarter 
are fraternity serenades in the spacious main lounge 
before the floor-length glass windows. — _,

Designs In Modern 



The other half of the twin Terraces, South Terrace 
complements North in every conceivable way. Also 
well equipped with all the conveniences of any modern 
hotel. South Terrace is a separate self-governing oper- 
ation completely opart from its counterpart. 

However, the girls of South Terrace claim larger 
territory as both cafeterias are added on to the South 
portion of the building as is the bakery on the second 
floor. It is through the South Terrace recreation room 
that lines wend their nightly way to dinner. 

Tripling this year, the dorm houses girls of all 
classes — from freshman to graduate student. Here, 
it is possible to observe the woman's world of a Uni- 
versity completely separated from the classtime scene 
of un-cold-creamed coeds.

North Terrace Hall 




One half of the newest women's dormitory on 
campus, North Terrace hall boasts living quarters for 
375 coeds. Within its pink corridors are housed 
campus leaders in a variety of activities. But it is in 
cooperative living that North Terrace really excels. 

The gals work together under the expert guidance 
of Mrs. Ethel Russell, resident housemother, for such 
top all-University activities as Homecoming. Campus 
Day, and Pork Barrel. In addition, the dorm is self- 
government in operation. Officers are elected early 
in fall quarter and serve as a dorm council in doling 
out campuses for misdemeanors. 

Corridor leaders keep the noise down during quiet 
hours as they patrol the dim halls, guarding the study 
habits of the residents.

Cooperation Pays Off 



The spaciousness of truly modern convenience is 
well evidenced in the construction of Terrace Hall. 
North Terrace is completely equipped with guest 
rooms, mail service, linen service, and luxurious 
lounge. In addition, snack machines offer solace to 
the dateless and food for thought while studying. 

Laundry rooms and phone stalls add to the decor 
and provide North Terrace residents with up-to-date 
equipment. Sharing the main lounge with South Ter- 
race residents is a feature of study dates. In addition, 
each of the wings has a recreation lounge with ping- 
pong tables and television. 

Each individual room now houses three girls. A 
bunk bed, a single bed, three desks, two bureaus, and 
a lounge chair contrast the print drapes in each room.

Moulton Hall 




Lowest building on the University totem pole, 
Moulton hall dotes back to 1917. Since its first year 
of occupancy, the dormitory has housed girls of every 
race and religion. 

This year, for the first time in many, the dorm was 
not restricted to freshmen. Also for the first time in 
recent years, the recreation rooms were not crowded 
into dormitory living room for the overflow of frosh 
that crowds the campus each fall. 

However, in spite of the basic changes, Moulton 
residents took over where their former residents had 
left off. Moultonites immediately went to work on 
decorations for Homecoming. Some turned their 
talents to athletics, participating for the Moulton 
intramural teams.

counselors to oversee the goings on in the dorm.

Lowry Hall 



Old — but friendly. 

Small — but cozy. 

That is Lowry Hall, chosen by a host of upper- 
classmen as their place of residence for 1955-56. 
Formerly, Lowry housed primarily sophomore co-eds, 
but with the addition of Terrace, 'ast year's returning 
students were given first choice as to their residence 
hall and a surprising number picked Lowry. 

Because it is the smallest of the women's resi- 
dences on campus, Lowry offers a unity of purpose 
found hard to duplicate in the larger dorms. It also is 
closest to the classrooms, thus making it possible to 
catch an extra five minutes of sleep before making 
that eight o'clock class. 

Included in Lowry is a television lounge and 
study rooms, converted for use from the former cafe- 
teria. The rooms, primarily doubles, are spacious 
and homey. Each is equipped with a washstand, un- 
like newer Terrace. A closely-knit group are the 
Lowryites — ranking high in fellowship, cooperation 
and scholarship.

Vine covered, red-bricked Engleman Hall situated 
just below Kent State's Union houses a group of coeds 
whose interests are many and as varied as the girls 
themselves. Life is far from dull as witnessed by a 
small flood that awakened the girls one morning after 
a heavy rain. 

Keeping peace and harmony between the residents 
are the counselors and housemother who listen to the 
complaints end problems and in return offer their 
understanding and advice.

Stopher Hall 



The only on-campus living residence hall for men, 
Stopher Hall offers on adventure in cooperation for 
its occupants. 

Almost completely student-operated, Stopher is 
governed by a council composed of representatives 
from the various corridors of the building. These 
upper-class guides serve to orientate incoming fresh- 
men in the ways of dormitory living as well as aiding 
them in general University etiquette. 

Relatively new in the campus picture, Stopher is 
currently undergoing enlargement as additional hous- 
ing, expected to accommodate some 250 more men, 
is being hinged onto the main building. 

A spacious, glassed-in cafeteria is perhaps the 
most eye-catching feature of Stopher. Above the 
cafeteria is a terrace, for dancing in warm months. 
Residents have the added convenience of electric wash 
machines and television. Primarily the dorm consists 
of double rooms, but a few singles and triples are 
scattered throughout the structure.

Stopher Gets New Wing 



The dormitory for men will be expected to be 
completed by the end of 1956. This building will also 
house 360 men, the some number as the new women's 
structure. 

The dorm will actually be on addition to Stopher 
Hall, and will be located southeast and northeast of 
the hall. The addition will be joined to the older 
building at the kitchen and dining hall. 

Men will have to go outside to get from one build- 
ing to the other, thus making this a rather complete 
living quarter in itself. The dormitory will have its 
own dining hall and recreation facilities. The supple- 
ment will also have an apartment for the house man- 
ager and one for his assistant. 

Rooms will be on the modern side also, decorated 
in the same manner as Stopher. There will be three 
men to a room.

A welcome addition to KSU will be the new women's dorm to be completed by the beginning of fall quarter, '56. 



A for cry from what the finished product will be like. 



New Women's Dorm 



Although a steel shortage had delayed the con- 
struction, the girl's dorm which is still unnamed, will 
be completed by this coming fall in time for the open- 
ing of the Fall quarter. 

The dormitory will house about 360 coeds instead 
of the previously planned 250, since there will be 
three girls in a room. Modern furnishings will decor- 
ate the new structure on the same plane as Terrace 
Hall. 

A dining hall and recreation room will be included 
as part of the dorm. The dining hall will be used only 
for the girls living there. 

Located south of Terrace Hall, which was just 
built the previous year, the building will be a welcome 
addition to the campus, as the housing shortage on 
campus is limited. Kent State's aim is to have all 
University women living on campus.

Long noted for its athletic prowess without 
being tagged with on 'over-emphasis' label, 
Kent State's teams keep the University in the 
spotlight on sports pages throughout the area. 

From the major sports like football, basket- 
ball and wrestling to the intramurals, the Uni- 
versity provides a well-rounded program. Kent 
State inter-collegiate teams consistently place 
at or near the top in every sport. 

The intramural programs draw hundreds of 
entries from both social organizations and ath- 
letically-minded individuals. Competition runs 
high on campus in a variety of sports — includ- 
ing bowling, table tennis and basketball. 

Athletic facilities are modern and up-to- 
date — witness the stadium addition, complet- 
ed but a year ago. View the field house, site of 
regional and sectional basketball tourneys 
each year. Two pools satiate the swimmer's 
appetite and scores of tennis courts dot the

Flashes Cop First 
From Broncs 



The 1955 football season may not have been as 
sparkling, record-wise, as the banner 8-1 season 
achieved by the Golden Flashes of a year earlier. But 
in every other way last Fall's campaign stacks up as 
the most significant in Kent State's 35-year grid 
history. 

Coach Trev Rees, in bringing home his tenth 
winner in 10 years at the helm, led his Flashes to six 
wins, two losses and a tie — still one of the best records 
on the University's books. And considering the calibre 
of the opposition, this may well have been the best 
Kent team of all time. The two losses were to power- 
ful Dayton and undefeated Miami, two teams just a 
step away from the "big time". 

But aside from the toughest schedule in history, 
the season was significant in other ways. A second 
place tie in the Mid-American Conference, rated as 
the most rugged small-college loop in the nation, was 
certainly a proud accomplishment. Then too, 1955 
saw all previous KSU attendance figures shattered. 
Capacity crowds of 13,000 sot in on the Homecoming 
gome with Marshall and the MAC showdown with 
Miami, the latter receiving nationwide attention 
through radio pick-ups, coast-to-coast, over CBS 
network.

Flashes Level OU 



Pre-season hopes of an undefeated season were 
popped right off the bat as Bowling Green held the 
favored Flashes to a 6-6 tie. 

A severe case of fumbilitis and unfortunate pass 
interceptions literally "gave" Dayton a 26-1 3 triumph 
over Kent. But a 33-2 victory over B-W a week later 
put the Flashes in the win column and a 20-14 upset 
win over perennially-powerful Ohio U the next week 
tabbed them as a real powerhouse. Rees had con- 
ceived the idea of alternating equally-balanced teams 
at the end of each period, and this "two-platooning" 
proved to be the key to the Flashes new-found success. 
A 39-6 Homecoming massacre of a good Marshall 
team raised enthusiasm to fever-pitch for the crucial 
battle with Miami the next week. With the loop title 
at stake, this was THE game of the year. 

The Flashes moved to an early 7-0 lead over the 
Big Ten foe, but faltered and the final score, 19-7. 
The remainder of the season was anticlimatic. The 
Flashes toyed with Toledo, 27-0; a narrow 14-0 win 
over a stubborn Waynesburg crew; and in the final 
game. Western Michigan fell 25-14.

Cagers Score 108 
Three Times 



Playing their first season under returning Coach Dave 
McDowell, the Flashes went on to post their best rec- 
ord in four years. Playing the most aggressive ball seen 
at Kent in many years, the cagers' record of 10 wins 
and 1 1 losses was posted in a hustling league where 
even the weak sisters are capable of knocking off the 
top dogs. 

Attendance for the year was up 50 per cent over 
the previous year. The big attraction was a team that 
three times during the year scored 108 points, to 
shatter the old school scoring mark. Adding another 
new record was sophomore guard Jim Gorsline, who 
hit on 49.3 per cent of his field goal attempts for the 
season. 

Another record-shattering mark was the 83.6 
points per game team average the F!ashes hung up 
during the season. 

Other notable incidents of the season saw Kent 
defeat Western Michigan for the first time since 
KSU joined the MAC in 1 951 . The Flashes also rang 
up 108 points and come within 2 points of defeating 
eventual MAC champion Marshall on Marshall's home 
floor. 





Doing things the hard way seems to be the aim of 
Don Gindlesberger as he rebounds against B-G.

Six players appear hypnotized as Kent's Bill Raybuck 
smothers the ball against an invading Akron U five. 



Facing a fast moving Wittenberg team early in 
the season, the Flashes carved out a two-point victory 
to the tune of 69-61. This was the team's first triumph 
after two close losses on their initial road trip. 

Moving from fast to faster company, Dave Mc- 
Dowell's hoopsters ran up against Marshall College's 
Thundering Herd, eventual Mid American Confer- 
ence champs and the MAC representative in the 
NCAA tournaments. Held to a five-point lead at 
the intermission, the invaders from West Virginia 
bounced back to capture a 97-83 verdict, in spite of 
Dan Potopsky's 26 point effort. 

In a later game at Huntington, where Marshall 
seldom if ever loses, the Flashes neatly pulled out the 
upset of the year. Behind Potopsky's 48 points, the 
Kent men scored 108 points against the high flying 
Green Wave, but lost by two. Potopsky's 48 points 
were only one mark away from his conference scoring 
record, which "Spook" had set the year before at 
Western Michigan. 

Facing Western Michigan's Broncos at home, 
Kent's cagers defeated the visitors, 97-90, behind 
red hot Jim Gorsline, who dropped in 28 points. This 
was Kent's initial win over a Bronc cage team in 
four years. 




Down on his knees against Marshall, Ke 
Edmunds eyes the situation as Potopsky 



nt State's 
watches. 



Trying to break away from Western Michigan to grab 
a "suspended" ball is McDonnell, big KSU forward. 



In for the pin, KSU's Lyie Schnittker piles on top a 
downed Wittenberger man. Raybuck (11) looks on.

so it seems, finds himself in a bad 
spot against John Carroll University. 



Balancing expert Bill Raybuck per- 
forms difficult feat between his feet 
as the Flashes blast Baldwin-Wallace. 




Up for the jump is Arch McDonnell (inwhitei as the Flashes level Indiana (Pa.) State Teachers by a 50-point 
margin, 108-58. Three times during the season Coach Dave McDowell's team hit the 108-point mari<. 



B-G Tilts Are Thrillers 



After finding themselves offensively, the Flashes 
took on an invading Indiana (Pa.) five. The results of 
the contest produced a new MPE scoring record and 
tied the team high, set earlier against Marshall. The 
final score; Kent State 108, Indiana 58. 

Dan Potopsky led the scoring parade with 27 
points closely followed by Bill Raybuck's 24. Alto- 
gether, nine players broke into the scoring column. 

However, the two real thrills of the season for the 
Flashes came in league gomes with Bowling Green. In 
a road game at B-G, Larry Edmunds' two lost-minute 
free throws won a 72-70 verdict. In a return match 
at the MPE building. Dove Johnson's field goal from 
the side with 7 seconds remaining, saved a 93-91 
verdict. 



Hero Dave Johnson gets a free ride after his bucket in 
the last 7 seconds gave KSU a 93-91 victory over B-G. 





Wrestlers Run Up 
6-24 Mark 



Under the expert guidance of veteran Coach Joe 
Begala, Kent's 1955-56 wrestling squad finished the 
season with a 6-2-1 record. With only one returning 
letterman, Begala built his team around a formidable 
nucleus of sophomores. 

Making the best showing of these newcomers was 
big heavyweight, Les Nader. Nader wound up the 
regular season and went on to capture the MAC top 
weight crown in the conference championships held 
at Kent. Only in his first year of varsity competition. 
Large Les shows as much promise as any Kent wrestler 
of the last few years. 

The Flashes were hurt by the early season loss of 
Phil Perkins, 177 pounds, and the last minute loss of 
Tom Butler, fast developing 177 pounder who injured 
his ribs shortly before the MAC championships. 



Ed Saloom, KSU 137 pounder, moves in for a cradle 
hold against Baldwin-Wallace as the Flashes triumph.

Fortified by returning lettermen in all but one 
weight class, Coach Begala will have something to 
work with next year. Loss of Dick Garner will leave 
a big gap at the 157 weight class for someone to fill. 

However, in the tough MAC, the Kent grapplers 
had a respectable 3-2 record. A bright star in the 
league picture for next season is the record of Kent's 
'55-'56 freshman team. The yearlings went through 
their three match schedule undefeated, dropping the 
tough B-G Falcons in their last match, 17-16.

Mermen Splash 
To 84 Mark 



Finishing a successful in the water campaign, 
Kent State's Mermen splashed their way to an 8-4 
season mark, exclusive of the MAC relays which were 
to be held later in the year. 

The tankers were sparked by Ron Reigler, Frank 
Anderson, Bill Haas, and Don Winter. Reigler, ma- 
chine-like swimmer with on unlimited supply of stam- 
ina, swam a myriad of events for Coach Bill Hoover's 
men. 

Anderson is the ex-Canton McKinley diving star 
who has continued his board feats at Kent, also swim- 
ming the shorter freestyle events. Winter is a back- 
stroker, while Haas along with Dave Imel, last year's 
captain, and Randy King are freewheeling free stylers 
and relay swimmers. 

Next year's team should be bolstered considerably 
in the diving and freestyle events by several promising 
freshmen who will move up from last year's yearling 
squad. 

In the MAC, always tough in any sport, KSU 
dropped verdicts to Miami, Ohio U and Bowling Green. 
Included among the Flashes victims were Wooster, 
Fenn, Kenyon, Carnegie Tech, Akron and Wittenberg.

A two-way tie in total points between Delta 
Upsiion and Sigma Nu marked the intramural stand- 
ings at the end of Winter quarter. Only ping-pong, 
track, golf and Softball competition remained. 

Delta Upsiion, defending champion for two years 
in a row, had won both the fraternity and all-Univer- 
sity championships in volleyball, and the fraternity 
swimming title, there being no independent 
competition. 

Sigma Nu won the fraternity crowns in wrestling 
and basketball, losing the University cage title to the 
Has Beens. 

Phi Delta Theta, a close third in the all-sports 
competition, had won both the fraternity and all- 
University football titles. 

Phi Sigma Kappa beat DU for the bowling crown, 
then lost the University championship to the 
Bartenders. 

The spring sports race was expected to be close, 
since DU was the defending champ in ping-pong and 
runner-up in Softball and track. Sigma Nu was run- 
ner-up in table tennis, and Theta Kappa Phi won golf. 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, a dark horse for the title, won 
Softball in Spring, '55, and placed in golf.

Diamond Squad 
Has 9-10 Year 



If you had to choose one word to sum up the 1 955 
baseball season at KSU, "inconsistency" would have 
to be it. 

Coach Matt Resick's charges showed flashes of 
brilliant baseball. At other times they looked as if 
they couldn't beat Depeyster's grade school team. 
The final tally showed nine wins, ten losses. 

Oddly, Kent often looked best while losing. Two 
of the setbacks were to Western Michigan, the second- 
best college team in the nation by virtue of their 
runner-up finish in the NCAA tourney. The Flashes 
could well have won both games from the Broncos. 
They dropped the first one 4-3 in eleven innings and 
it took a ninth inning rally by the champs to unseat 
Kent 9-7 in the second tilt. 

Individual star was pitcher Bob Harrison who com- 
piled the lowest earned-run average in the conference.

Libertini is

First baseman Dan Potopsky, All-MAC basketball 
player and a baseball standout for three seasons, 
reaches for a fast flip to first as a Miami runner thun- 
ders down the line. Kent split in two games with the 
Redskins. 




Hat in hand, a KSU runner heads for a vacant first 
base against a hustling Wooster College nine. This 
game was a warm-up for two tough contests with the 
high-riding Broncs of Western Michigan. Kent lost 
two close games. 

Teammates wait for Third Sacker Rudy Libertini as he 
crosses home plate after blasting a home run during 
an early season home gome. Libertini, both in the 
field and at bat led the Flashes to a 10-9 season 
record. 




Off to a quick start in the "1 00" against Bowling Green are Kent's Redding, Bloch and Rittichier. 



Ancient Sport Rolls 
On Over Years 



Track and field is, without doubt, the oldest of all 
sports, with beginnings that trace back to the days 
of ancient Greece. It is a unique sport in that an 
athlete is not only competing against other athletes, 
but against himself as well, constantly striving to run 
faster, jump higher, or throw something farther. The 
past year saw, for the first time, the running of a 
four-minute mile. Other barriers — both physical and 
psychological — are bound to be broken in the future.

Frosh Track Team 
Shows Promise 



The 1955 track season at Kent State was disap- 
pointing. When a team loses seven straight meets 
without a victory, it is certainly nothing but that. Yet, 
as behind every dark cloud, there was a silver lining. 

In this case, the silver lining was the freshman 
team. Possessing a glittering array of stars, it was 
perfectly capable of defeating the varsity ■ — which 
gives Coach jay Fischer a rosy outlook this spring. 

The 1955 Flash thinclads had some top perform- 
ers, but lacked depth. Valuable second and third 
places often went to the opposition only because Kent 
had no other contestants. Even still, the team might 
have won at least two meets. A 74^2-72 'A loss to 
Case Tech could have gone either way; so likewise the 
76-71 setback to Akron U. 

Despite the poor won- loss record, the season had 
its bright spots, among them two all-time records 
which fell off the Kent State books. Both were set, 
oddly enough, by athletes more famous perhaps for 
their exploits on the football team — Luke Owens who 
put the shot 48' Vi" and Don Burke, who pole-vaulted 
to a new high of 1 3 feet even.

Tennis Team Bounces 
To Fair Record 



Returning a volley against Fenn College is KSU's Sam 
Portman, number three singles man on Karl Chest- 
nutt's 1955 net team. Kent decisioned Fenn, 7-2. 



Coach Karl Chestnutt, who steers the tennis for- 
tunes at Kent State, admitted before the start of the 
1955 season that his netters would be lucky to win a 
single match. He'd had a very good season in 1954, 
but graduation. Uncle Sam and scholastic deficiencies 
combined to deal him a severe manpower blow for the 
approaching campaign. 

Chestnutt's dire prediction was well-founded, for 
Kent didn't enjoy a winning season. But it was better 
than Chestnutt had let on. His men managed to win 
three, while losing six — a far cry from the winless 



spring he was prepared to face. 

The Flashes boasted at least three players who 
could play on almost any college team around — Shel- 
ley Wyman, Sam Portman and Harris Brown. But be- 
yond them the squad was inexperienced. It possessed 
a lot of youth, though, which bodes well for the future. 

Chestnutt's "no win" fear was silenced right off 
the bat as his racket-wielders topped Fenn 7-2. Twin 
triumphs over Youngstown provided the other two vic- 
tories, while losses were to Case, Oberlin, Western 
Reserve, Bowling Green, Marshall and John Carroll.

Golfers Tie For Second 
In MAC Title Match 



After compiling a season's record of four wins 
against four defeats in regular match play, Kent 
State's golf squad finished in a second place dead- 
lock with Bowling Green in the MAC championships. 
Both were nine strokes behind the champion and host 
college, Ohio University. With only one returning let- 
terman, links coach Howard Morette planned his 
squad around three juniors and two sophomores. Joe 
Lazor, lone veteran, led the team with a 15.1 stroke 
average for the season. Close behind was Gordy 
Paulus with a 76 stroke per match overage. Other 
team members and their respective averages were: 
Floyd Paulus, 79.5; Jimmy Thompson, 81.6; Edward 
Zofko, 82.8, and Mike Norcia, 83 even.

To /he students and faculty of Kent State University, 

At the end of almost every yearbook, the editor writes his final message. 
Some are very long, others are short. Whether they are long or short, they 
all say the very same thing — "Thanks". 

I would like to express my most sincere thanks to the top notch staff with 
which I worked. Without their loyal work it would have been impossible to 
turn out a publication of this size. 

Without the professional help of the companies which we work with, the 
book would be very difficult to produce. My most sincere thanks to Fred 
Noer, Russell Benson, Frank Persell and Margaret Carey of the Indianapolis 
Engraving Co.; Judson Rinebold of the Gray Printing Co.; and the Universal 
Bookbindery. 

If I were to start listing all the people I would like to thank, it would 
take pages and pages. Therefore, there are naturally many people who have 
worked on the book that I have not mentioned. Certain persons have done a 
great deal of work and ore not even listed on the staff. To these people I 
owe my deepest thanks. 

In every venture of this size there are bound to be mistakes even though 
everything has been checked and double-checked. I sincerely hope that none 
of the mistakes which might exist will offend anyone in any way. 

At times tempers flared and harsh words were spoken. The book was 
always in mind and nothing personal was ever intended. 

I must also thank the people that put up with my moods as I worried about 
the book and struggled to meet deadlines. 

As I write this, there is very little to be done on the book. The long hard 
struggle which so many of us thought would never end has finally reached 
that end. As the result of that struggle we have a yearbook . . . one which 
we hope will satisfy everyone at KSU who helped to make it a success. 

The Editor
